About Senetti


Imagine yourself walking through the breath taking ancient narrow streets of the South Spanish city of sunny Seville in the early spring. Walls, fountains, bridges and stairs covered with colourful mosaic stones and the stunning looking “moors” Giralda clock tower from the 12th century gleaming up from behind the static facades. On a background of green leaves and intense blue and white Senetti flowers there’s a guitar player sitting on a bench playing sweet rhythmic tunes, you can feel that’s this is the home of the graceful art and passionate flamenco folklore.

This is the passionate spring feeling you get with the intense and temperamental colours of Senetti Pericallis collection.

Senetti is known as a true early flowering type. Staring at the flower reminds you of the beautiful weather of southern countries like Spain. Senetti has the characteristics that can give everyone a summer feeling in early spring.
