Pericallis 'senetti blue'

Species: Pericallis senetti.

South African native, it is very cold tender until this senetti form was developed. It still couldn't flower in the outdoor chill last year, best blooming was indoors spring and fall. I let the plant go to seed last fall and will try them for viabiliy in a few months. A little too tender for me, and a favorite of aphid once brought in.
