Pentas

from a few tiny cuttings sent to me by post in spring, these small plants are slowly gathering pace now, and a few flowering heads to photograph.  


I suspect that after the summer heat, in the perfect Autumn months ahead, that the Pentas' will really put on a good growth spurt.


I should even be able to take cuttings myself then and be able to propagate more of the same.

Beautiful colors, and hard to believe that it is fall for you. Feeling sorry for you.... Well hope your winter upcoming is much easier than it has been in the US!
