Pericallis – Ornamental Plant of the Week for February 10. 2014

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.
