Pentas lasted almost to Christmas outside. A few Butterflies were out briefly yesterday before the rain and wind picked up.
I went out and picked as many Pentas stems as I could. I have plans for white Pentas in a bed of whites next spring. You can’t have too many ‘Ruby’ Pentas, just ask the butterflies.
‘They’ say there’s only about a 10% success rate, but last Spring I had really good rootings and in years before.
There are already rooted cuttings in the greenhouse, lots of pink and rose and a few
lavender too but they never seem enough when planting time comes.
