Extensive Definition

This page is about the South African genus Cineraria. For the related ornamental plant also so named, see Florist's Cineraria.
Cineraria is now generally treated as a genus of about 50 species of flowering plants in the family Asteraceae, native to southern Africa. The genus includes herbaceous plants and small subshrubs.
In the past, the genus was commonly viewed in a broader sense including a number of species from the Canary Islands and Madeira which are now transferred to the genus Pericallis, including the Florist's Cineraria (Pericallis x hybrida).
Amongst the uses for Cineraria include topical application for the treatment of cataracts.
