Many people may be unfamiliar with pericallis, but the Senetti series contains the first repeat-blooming varieties.
They are good plants for late winter through late spring flower color.
Cold hardy to the upper 30s or low 40s, these plants are not frost-tolerant. They will need some protecting if planted in a landscape before the last killing frost or freeze.
Good for container gardens, retail garden centers feature them as Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day and other spring holiday plants.
