Senettis are the perfect plants to bridge the gap
between late winter and early spring.
There’s an exciting new flower that’s fast becoming the harbinger of spring. It arrives in garden centers in late January and it comes into its full glory in February and March. It’s name? Senetti.
Bred in Japan and introduced just a few years ago, Senettis are sure to get the spring gardening urge going. Each plant becomes covered with daisy-like flowers in stunningly vivid hues of magenta, blue and lavender. Each long-lasting bloom has a contrasting “eye” and some have pure white surrounding black “eyes”.
Senettis are the perfect plant to pop into your garden or in containers to bridge the gap between late winter and early spring. Somewhat similar to old-fashioned cinerarias in appearance, Senettis will repeat bloom, and flower on sturdier, more compact plants.
Give them morning sun and afternoon shade, or dapped sun all day. Coastal gardeners can plant them in full sun. Plant them in rich, well-draining soil and water regularly.
