Egyptian Star Flower
This is a great plant for planting in a garden bed. It often blooms all year long. They are not terribly fussy.
Each flower is replaced by two more. Anytime your Pentas gets too big, just take your clippers and cut it back. You can’t hurt it. Nowadays we have lots of dwarf types of Pentas in addition to the older tall ones.
Easy to grow in a sunny to lite shade area. Inland you should give some shade.
