Pentas, Butterfly Sparkles Mix is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 1017.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Butterflies do love them! I ordered these seeds as an annual to add some color to my patio. They were a bit slow to come up, but they did well with a bit of proper germination care. This is why I gave them a 4 rather than a 5. The flowers are beautiful little stars and the butterflies absolutely flocked to them. They are also excellent to plant around the garden edges to attract bees and other pollinators.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just would not grow I purchase these and the other penta seeds and could not get anthing but a couple of sprouts that grew about 1/4 inch and refused t budge on that height. I pretty much grow all my annuals from start and I have to say that I will not bother with these again.
