Comments: Pentas prefer full sun, but will perform fairly well in part shade. This red flowered variety is good for hummingbirds and butterflies. Variegated foliage are a plus for this plant and make the red flowers even more of a focal point. It is a low, mounding, sturdy grower introduced by Greg Grant.
