First-to-Bloom and Rebloom: Senetti Pericallis

A friend recently sent me this image:

Im sorry for the things I said when it was Winter

And it’s so true for me right now. I easily get irritated, borderline angry and toddler-like frustrated in the winter months. Sometimes so bad, a savory Snickers bar can’t even bring me back. The urge to have my own greenhouse is never more prevalent. And the need {read: NEEEEDDDD} to have flowers in my house, in my car, following me down the sidewalk…has never been so desired. I’m always eager to see the first blooms of the season at the garden center — heck, this time of year you’ll even see me perusing the floral shop at the grocery store!! I’m that desperate for a touch of flower power to get me (sanely) through to Spring.

So…of course, Suntory has my back, as they have yours. They understand the need to keep a “garden” growing, whether its flourishing on your kitchen table or popping up from your California balcony. They know the need to keep fresh flowers around. And not just a one-and-done kind of bouquet. A presentation that keeps giving, and that’s their Senetti pericallis.

While the lineup has been around for years, boasting varieties such as Senetti Baby pericallis and the our standard Senetti pericallis, new for 2016 is something pretty magical: Senetti Sparkle. There are three gorgeous bloom colors…

And one of my personal favorites…

Isn’t that blue hue beautiful?!?

Senetti Sparkle is the most heat tolerant variety of all our pericallis and — as already mentioned — they bloom and bloom and bloom. A must-have for a long, dreary winter. Our garden friend, Shirley Bovshow knows what I’m talking about…

Beyond their wintery benefits, the petite size of Senettis is an extra bonus. Reaching heights up to 23 inches and expanding to 15 inches. They’re ideal for the coffee table, Spring patio container gardens, or in your landscape — in the right regions of course.

Armstrong Garden Centers, located in sunny California, has a wide selection of Senetti pericallis yearning to grace your home and garden.
