Senecio polyodon


Availability : Available

Description :

Pink groundsel, an abundance of starry flowers

Senecio polyodon, native to wet meadows and banks in Southern Africa (Lesotho, Swaziland), is a simple attractive perennial, and its very long flowering period makes it an endearing variety in the garden.

From June until the first frosts, tall inflorescences emerge continuously from its simple rosette foliage, bearing a myriad of intensely purplish-pink, mini daisy blooms.

Senecio polyodon is a good filler plant for a mixed border (e.g. combined with the taller flowers of Kniphofia or Dierama or bouquets of Echinacea), a good addition to a meadow garden or an extensive rockery where it will naturalise by re-seeding. This may, however, be sporadic!

Grow in the sun or slight shade in ordinary, slightly acid to alkaline soil, which is not too dry in summer and well-drained in winter.

Height: 40 cm to 60 cm. Hardiness: -8°C / -10°C

In heavy, damp soil, improve drainage by adding some rough sand during planting.

Maintenance: regularly trim the dried floral stems
