What is cineraria valued for? Because this cute plant is not killed by the first frosts. She will stand until it is covered with snow, and practically does not change. Her leaves are not moist, but hard, leathery, due to this she can withstand minor frosts and lasts longer than any flower beds. Therefore, it is appreciated by those who plant plants on the street. After the first freezing, as a rule, the snow still does not fall, the plants all die, but the sea cineraria at least somehow maintains the appearance of your site.
Read in more detail how landing and caring for cineraria is done.
So, we plant seeds of marine cineraria, like seeds of other flowers, in cassettes, this can be done now, now the end of February - the beginning of March. You can drop cineraria into cassettes now, or at the end of April - beginning of May you plant it immediately in the ground, when there will be no night cold, and the temperature at night will not be lower than 10 ° C. You plant 1 seed in each cell of the cassette. It will grow due to the fact that when it rises, you will cut off the top. If you cut the top of the sea cineraria - the bush will be more fluffy, but if you did not cut the top - the bush will be pulled, essentially single, without side branches. Therefore, as soon as the plant emerged from the earth by 5-8 centimeters - you sparingly trim the top 2-3 cm from above, and leave 3-5 centimeters. This way you give her the opportunity to blossom.
Blooming sea cineraria is not very attractive, it has quite small yellow flowers, but its flowering does not last long, and, in my opinion, it even spoils the appearance of this beautiful plant. Flowering does not last long, so when the cineraria has bloomed, it takes on a very pretty appearance and continues to delight you with its stability and its presence on your site. And it should also be noted that it is quite drought-resistant. You can plant marine cineraria where you do not always water it, you don’t have cable watering in this place, or you don’t reach this place exactly, but you want something to grow there or something to blossom. Landing there marine cineraria, you guess at 100%. She will survive in a more drought-resistant place, where an ordinary lawn would not survive.
