Egyptian Star Cluster, Pentas lanceolata, Madder Family
I posted this photograph in a number of Facebook groups this morning. Sadly, the pandemic has curtailed our regular visits to Longwood Gardens.
Subhash Sharma With their sixteen wonderful varieties, these red (pink) star-shaped flowers with small white centres bloom atop erect stems from spring to autumn. This evergreen perennial or sub-shrub is often grown as a summer annual. It generally stays under 60 cm tall in the garden, but some species can reach over 180 cm tall in the wild. They may be grow in a bed or border, or in containers.
Mr. Sharma is a Facebook friend. He frequently comments on my photographs as I post them on Facebook.
