The main difference from the traditional seed grown Senecio, syn. Cineraria, is their hardiness, their compact bun shape, their vigorous display of masses of large spectacular coloured daisy flowers, they are considered more of a perennial due to the fact you can cut them back after flowering to stimulate a second flush.
