Love colour, nature, growing fresh herbs and vegies to eat; and flowers for my floral arrangements. Small garden in sub tropics of SE Queensland.

Pink Pentas. Growing in gardens on Promenade walk, Cairns. These had been pruned into a hedge, encouraging masses of flowers on exterior surface of bush. Created a dramatic display. #tropical #cairns #pentas #pentas-pink

Pentas. Large balls of blooms growing on a 1.5 metre tall bush. Mine grow to about half this size. Maharani Bagh Orchid Retreat, Ranakpur, India. #india

Pretty. They do look more like ixoras.

@novicegardenlover They are as big as Ixora, but definitely Pentas. I saw many plants in India growing to three times the size I am familiar with. It must be the generous amount of rain mixed with the heat.

That's amazing Annette. Sorry. By the way, were there orchids in bloom at the Retreat?

@novicegardenlover No, I believe there are 1,300 species of orchids in India, but I did not see any orchids at 'Orchid Retreat' or during my travels through India. I think Singapore is the best place to see orchids. 🐝🐝
