Best summer flowers for South Florida

My favorite perennials for the summer give lots of color are easy to grow, and last for years.  Pentas come in a wide variety of colors.  Remember the red, white and soft pinks are the largest growers reaching up to four feet.  The purple color is the shortest, reaching up to one foot.  When planting the pentas keep this in mind and plant the larger ones in the back and the shorter ones in the front.  Pentas also attract butterflies.  They also do well in partial shade.

  1. I planted red pentas and white pentas last year and now have red, white and pink. I'm not sure if they self seeded or reverted to a more common form. Have you ever had that happen?
