Pentas, Starcluster Red is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the tiny stars I love to use Penta to replace the pansies and other early blooming flowers. This year the Pentax. were not as tall as I anticipated or fill out as they had previously.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Peasy Pentas are sooo under rated. They bloom like crazy, take so little effort, and will grow under the worst (or best) of conditions. When I grew them in FL, they grew in full sun, full shade, poor soil, total neglect (once established), and bloomed year round.
