Pink, white, purple and blue cineraria flowers

Pink, white, purple and blue cineraria flowers (Senecio cineraria (Senecio))

I grow my flower garden in Melbourne, Australia. The climate here is mild, with cool but not freezing winters, ideal for two seasonal flower crops each year. My flower garden fills the front yard and extends both sides of the footpath to the edge of the road. Local people come past in numbers to see the blooms when the flowerings are happening. This is why.

This mass planting of beautiful flowers would be a great drawcard ... can understand why people would flock to see it!

The cinerarias are the most strikingly beautiful flowering annuals I have grown. This winter I intend to grow them right across the whole front yard where the flower beds are shaded by trees. There will be five flower beds for a total of 64 square metres of cineraria flowering plants growing in the shady conditions, and in the sunny areas three flower beds for a total of 49 square metres of ranunculus flowering plants.

That's going to be a spectacular sight! I'm hoping you never get yobbos coming in and ripping out some of your flowers!
