SENECIO

Taxonomists have shaken up this group of daisy relatives, reclassifying two of its most important members and many second-tier species as well. One plant formerly known as dusty miller, Senecio greyi, is now a Brachyglottis; florists’ cineraria, S. x hybridus, is now Pericallis x hybrida. In addition, some succulent species have been moved here from Kleinia, and some former Senecios have been moved to Kleinia
