Pentas is a wonderful plant. It comes in many colors from red to pink, lavender and white. My pink one and my red one I grew from cuttings. This pink one is my second as my previous one was too old and when I went to de-pot it(from it's whiskey barrel), it had hardly any roots and I had to chuck it :-( But I got a new one :-) The hummingbirds love them. The plants take full sun to part shade. I have mine on an east side but at our old house I had them on the north side. The pink and red ones grow to about 4 feet. My white one stays compact to only 2 feet. Nurseries used to carry all kinds of Pentas. Most that you'll find now are the lower growing varieties. But I love the taller ones as they fill in a space better and the hummingbirds will be safer away from the ground and cats. They are all frost tender and they bloom almost constantly! How many plants do that?
