Pericallis 'Senetti Magenta Bicolor'

Pericallis 'Senetti Magenta Bicolor'
Common name florist's cineraria
Family asteraceae
Life cycle perennial (Z9-11)
Flowers various colors, including bicolors
Size 15-24"
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil, not too dry

Mounding tender perennial (often grown as an annual or a potted plant for indoor display) covered in bicolored daisy flowers over its season of bloom. Heavy feeder, needs regular moisture, and appreciates shade in summer. We bought ours without knowing anything about it, because it looked pretty on the nursery bench – but I don't think it will last long in our garden.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
