Can you identify this plant please?

Morning all.   I bought these plants from Aldi last summer and as usual I don't have the info tag and can't remember the name. They flower as in the picture then when the blooms die off you trim it back and get a second flourish although not as good as the first. Trying to find them as seeds or plugs. Not the best picture and might be able to doctor it if necessary. Thank you all in advance.

  • Thanks Hostafan1.  Was hoping I would recognise the name and that doesn't ring any bells but certainly looks like that is what they are.

    Easy to grow from seed.
    I sowed some last autumn, just so that I could have some to brighten up indoors now, when we often can get dismal weather. Got some pots on the windowsills and more waiting in the greenhouse. :)

    Probably wrong, but look like Senetti to me.

  • Bingo. That name is familiar so confident that is correct. Thanks all.

    Is cineraria not that grey stuff?

    I thought it looked like Senetti or something similar too.
