Are you looking for a plant that can easily boost your mood and provide you with a sense of calmness? Look no further than the Senetti®. This stunning plant is renowned for its vibrant, eye-catching colors and impressive bloom size, adding a pop of color and happiness to any space.


Senetti® Is a Plant Unlike Any Other

The Senetti® is a specific brand with certain characteristics that makes it outstanding, within the Pericallis family, also known as Pericallis x Hybrida. Native to the Canary Islands, Pericallis is a hybrid of two species, Senecio and Cineraria. This plant has large daisy-like flowers in shades of blue, pink, purple, and white, with a beautiful yellow center. It thrives in full sunlight and moderate temperatures, making it a great addition to any garden or indoor space.

What makes the Senetti® outstanding is the fact that these plants are bred by MNP / Suntory, a famous high-quality breeder,


Senetti Pericallis Senecio Cineraria


Senetti® originates from the skilled breeders at Suntory Flowers in Japan. Senetti is a captivating array of Pericallis hybrids that are the result of expert crossbreeding between members of the Compositae and Asteraceae families. Although previously classified as a cineraria hybrid, Senetti® is quite different from seed-grown cineraria typically found in households.

Because until recently all material was raised from seed, they were known for being winter and spring flowering plants. Now the genus Senecio has been re-classified into Pericallis in recent years, the Senetti® is the first to come from vegetative cuttings, making it available almost the entire year and you can also use it as an indoor plant! Just put it in a place permeable to light, at room temperature and it will flourish.

The Senetti® is a Striking Plant With Striking Large Daisly-like Flowers

Senetti®'s striking, large daisy-like flowers emerge rapidly with a single plant in a 10-inch pot boasting up to 200 blooms. What's more, Senetti® possesses a unique ability to rebloom. Simply trim the plants back by half, and a new wave of blooms will make their appearance. However, when placed outside during the summer when nighttime temperatures rise above 30 degrees Celcius, Senetti®'s flowering tends to pause. Being an originally early spring plant, Senetti® prefers temperatures below that.

These plants are simply spectacular. Not only can they endure chillier temperatures as low as 2 degrees C but they also infuse vibrant hues into the landscape just when it's most needed. Whether it's the dazzling blues, mesmerizing magentas, ultraviolets, or eye-catching bicolors, Senetti® is your go-to for an early burst of color.

For an irresistible spring display, pair Senetti® with other cool-loving bedding plants like pansies. These plants are super versatile, thriving in both full sun and partial sun conditions. With Senetti, spring never looked so colorful! The Senetti® is an annual plant, which means that it grows and blooms for one season. This makes it a popular choice for gardeners who want to diversify their gardens and patios with different plants in different seasons.

Senetti® Care: How to Keep Your Plant Healthy and Happy


The Senetti® thrives in full sunlight, making it perfect for outdoor spaces. However, it can also grow well indoors, as long as it is placed in a location that gets ample sunlight. 6 hours of sunlight exposure every day will help the plant grow healthy.


Senetti® prefers well-draining soil that is kept evenly moist. Water the plant when the top inch of soil is dry. Too much water will cause root rot, so make sure to allow the soil to dry out slightly before watering again.


Senetti® prefers moderate humidity levels, so it's perfect for tropical climates. When grown in dry conditions, it's suggested to increase the humidity levels by adding a humidifier near the plant or placing the pot on a tray filled with stones and water.


This plant variety prefers moderate temperatures ranging from about 30 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Temperatures outside of this range may cause the plant to wilt or die.


The Senetti® thrives in well-draining, nutrient-rich soil that is kept evenly moist. Choose soil that has enough drainage to prevent water from pooling in the pot, as this may cause root rot.
