    I think it's a pericallis "Senetti Deep blue".
    They used to call them Senecio l believe.

    I know Lantana, l was thinking "It begins with an S, then no, it changed to something beginning with P". Took me a while to remember!

    M-U is correct, they were once known as Cineraria. Mine always seemed to be plagued by leaf miner.

    Cineraria / Senecio / Pericallis - no wonder l get confused ! Beautiful colour.
