Growing Pentas

Hi all,

As I was perusing another garden centre, as one does while visiting the gardens of Hall Place in Bexley I was taken by the lovely pink/purple star shaped flowers of Pentas Norther Lights. The label has scant information and what I have found online is that it usually doesn't survive past winter in our climate and it's grown as an annual.

Have any of you grown them and have you got any tips to share? I'll wrap it with some fleece in the off chance it survives. But if will provide another source of nectar for bees and butterflies.

To Plant a Garden is to Believe in Tomorrow
