Stays in colour…Really!
Lucky Star is bred for the fastest follow-up blooming of any pentas on the market.

Nonstop colour means plants look better getting off the truck and they just keep getting better in the store! Plus, this colour-rich series has a tight, compact habit that keeps them looking tidy with virtually no effort. The promise of continuous, show-stopping colour on full, lush plants…now that’s a huge plus!

Plug crop time: 6 to 7 weeks
Transplant to finish: 7 to 8 weeks

  • With the fastest follow-up blooming of any pentas on the market and a 1-week bloom window, Lucky Star maintains a consistent show of colour from retail through end-of-season.
  • Follow-up blooms do not eclipse the prior flush, so plants stay compact, tight and ready for sale at retail with minimal work.

Bright, no-fade colour is the first-of-its-kind for pentas.
