The Q&A Archives: How to care for Senetti (Magenta) plants?

Question: I planted a couple of Senetti plants two weeks ago. They had lots of blooms but now the blooms are dying. Should I dehead the dryed flower or dehead back to the stem. Will they bloom again? They are in a partly shady/partly sunny area.

Answer: This plant can be cut back to about four inches or so, to try for another set of flowers in about a month. However, this plant grows as a cool season crop or spring flower and does best at temperature of about 65 degrees or a bit cooler. You may find that the weather has now turned too warm for it. I hope this helps.
