Native to the Canary Islands and Sicily, where it thrives in the Mediterranean climate, Cineraria is a perennial plant belonging to the Asteraceae family. Its name is derived from the Latin word “senex”, meaning “old man”. After it blooms, Cineraria flowers develop white and gray hairs, or “pappus”, which resemble the gray hair of an old man, hence the name. Cineraria blooms beautiful blue and purple flowers from winter to spring. Although there are many different varieties of Cineraria, they are mainly divided into four major cultivars: “gigantia”, “grandiflora”, “multiflora” and “parviflora”.
