Pericallis Senetti Violet Bicolor

When it comes to early spring color, you can’t beat the Senetti pericallis series from Suntory Flowers. Three inches across flower count can be as high as 200 on a plant grown in a 10-inch pot in electric shades of blue, purple, pink, magenta and new white. Senetti varieties are dramatically different from old-fashioned cinerarias. Although the vivid bicolor flowers look familiar, the cool weather garden performance, durability, and vigor Senetti offers is so much better. Plus Senetti has a unique reblooming ability and can be cut back for a fresh flush of flowers..  Pericallis thrives in cool weather and makes a great companion for other early-birds such as pansy and sweet alyssum.  The plants are also attractive to butterflies and deer resistant. 
Pericallis is a snap to grow. It thrives in full or partial sun and prefers a rich, slightly moist soil. When grown in containers use a commercial potting soil mix. Just remember that pericallis is heat-sensitive so plant it early when the temperatures are cool--they can tolerate temperatures as low as 35 degrees F. However, the plants do not like frost so protect them if an unexpected cold snap occurs. Water whenever the soil feels dry to the touch.


Available in 6" round pots
