Cineraria is so Pretty


Cineraria
Originally uploaded by brewbooks

I mentioned here that I planted a cineraria in the little garden I created in honor of my cat, and someone told me they had not heard of cineraria, so I am posting a photo here.
Isn't it cheerful? It likes shade and semi-shade and I have a lot of shade and the plants reach about 18 inches tall, with a nice rounded form.
There are lots of colors available including rose. I am so happy with my one plant that I plan to buy several more in different colors for shady areas.
I hope you enjoy cineraria too.

Hi Terra! I also never heard about this plant. First, I thought it looked like a primula, but of course, they are different. It's very pretty, and the fact that it likes shade makes it more valuable.

Very pretty. I can never remember the names of flowers so I'm going to write this down in a file! Then I'll have to see if it's hardy enough to survive our weather up here.

They look fabulous - I wish things like that would grow on this side of the world :0)

These are beautiful. I may try to find some here. The backyard is fine, but the front needs some life.

The blue in those blooms is so intense! I love it although I don't think I've ever seen it around here. Will keep my eye open for it.
