New & Improved!
Imagine flocks of colorful butterflies and hummingbirds visiting your garden all summer long! That’s what you’ll get when you add Pentas to your garden plan. Pentas develop bright star-shaped flowers all summer long in bold hues of red, white, lavender, purple, or pink. Pentas is one of the best pollinator-attracting plants around. It blooms all summer long, even during the hottest weather conditions. The large clusters of starry blooms on Pentas are the perfect resting place for butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees. Penta grows well in borders or plant them in masses where they make a striking display. They also are excellent in containers.
You should plant Pentas in a sunny location that receives at least 6 to 8 hours of bright light a day. Although they are more drought resistant than some other annual flowers, it’s essential to water when the soil feels dry to the touch. Keep Pentas in top form by feeding the plants every few weeks with TLC Garden Max fertilizer. The plants need no deadheading.
Pentas have been popular annual for several years, but the past few years plant breeders have developed new varieties, which have faster follow-up blooming giving continuous show-stopping color. Here are three TLC Garden Centers are growing:
The most compact grower with a height 10 to 12″ and a width of 12 to 14″.
A mid-size growing variety with a height of 12 to 16″ and a width of 12 to 14″.
A taller variety reaching a height of 18 to 22″ and a width of 22 to 24″.
