Pentas have hairy green leaves and clusters of flowers in shades of red, white, pink, and purple. I planted some in the front bed from a punnet of seedlings and forgot about them until a year on I found this one thriving despite considerable neglect. 

And today I saw them again at the Bribie Island Butterfly House. It seems pentas are very attractive to butterflies and native bees.  Time to get propagating.
