Hi all,

I have an ID question and I would like to know if they are annual or perennial. Can you cross pollinate them? They are doing wonderfully. Just deadheaded for the second time as they have put on two great shows so far. Couldn't resist the colors when I bought them!!

Pericallis x hybrida, Senecio cruentus, Senecio x hybrida. technically they are perennial in my oppinion, but depend on climates, most usually treat them as annual.
Grown them once from seeds, love them too, but difficult to keep them happy in humid tropics

Thank you guys so much, and what speed!!

I want to try an experiment with them. Cross pollinate the two magical colors.

I already collected some seeds to grow up for fun. Out one of those stay dry medicine packets in the envelope!!
