Pericallis x hybrida, commonly known as Cineraria, or florist cineraria, is a flowering plant in the daisy family. Cinerarias come in a variety of beautiful coloured and bi-coloured blooms, that are a big hit in the Spring. Cineraria thrive in cooler climate and prefer partial light.

Cineraria thrive in full to partial sun, depending on the time of year. To maintain the quality of your Cineraria, ensure the soil is slightly moist. They are heat-sensitive and prefer cooler temperatures.
Once in bloom, Cinerarias can last between 4-6 weeks. Unfortunately, Cinerarias will not bloom again. They are an annual plant and only flower once in their lifespan.
