pentas - apulia plants

Pentas

The Pentas Lanceolata originates from Africa and the Middle East and it is widespread in the cultivation. They are perennial plants that, in right climatic conditions, bloom for a long period of time; if the heat is sufficient, they start blooming at the end of the winter and they continue until autumn. Pentas are very suitable for the butterfly garden, meaning that their continuous blooming attracts butterflies, bees and other useful insects into the garden. They prefer sunny positions, they well withstand heat. Watering should be regular.
