Pentas.

Pentas are not native to most of the US and will not survive the winter, so it is usually grown as an annual in most places. I had difficulty to growin it from seeds.

I no longer grow this plant in my butterfly garden either. Partly because it is an annual that has to be replaced every year. I also didn't have very good luck with it. Maybe I just didn't have it planted in a good spot?


Where to buy Pentas

Most nurseries sell it.


The Rubiaceae Family

Herbs, shrubs and trees with flowers in clusters. 450 genera and 6500 species. Coffee, quinine, gardenia are either from this family or made from members of it.
