High-Voltage Color, Pericallis

Pericallis produces a plethora of large daisy-like blooms in a unique, high-voltage color spectrum of blues and violets. These dynamite plants love cool, wet weather making them a perfect choice for early spring. The leaves are heart-shaped and range from medium to dark green. The center of the foliage is home to a rounded cluster of daisy blossoms that are a deep, blue-purple to magenta with petal bases being white around the central eye of the flower. Try planting them in the garden or in large patio containers to add vivid color in spring. Plant in full to part-sun locations.

And, be sure to check out Pericallis Primavera™Blueberry. Bred in Israel, this variety brings good heat tolerance compared to the competition. As with other pericallis, its tolerance of cool temperatures makes it an excellent choice for early, cool-season color. Its compact habit and continuous flowering is well suited in large containers and gardens.
