Danita, do you grow this from seed? I haven't had much luck with pentas but I love them! It's beautiful!

No, I bought the plant at the Plantapalooza Sale in Athens. I haven't found any seeds on it yet. Pentas are heterostylous and this one has exserted pistils. I keep looking for a Pentas plant with exserted stamens to get pollination but have failed thus far. The variegation probably wouldn't come true from seed anyway. I really like this one for both the flowers and foliage. It's a mutation from one of the tall, old-fashioned Pentas.
