  • Fertilize perennial and annual Pentas on a monthly basis using a balanced water-soluble plant food.
  • When planting this easy care flower in spring include a slow-release fertilizer to provide the necessary nutrients for the plant to grow and thrive.
  • Follow up with monthly liquid feedings, using the recommended application rates listed on the label.
  • Also in the springtime add a 2-inch layer of mulch to conserve precious water and prevent weeds.
  • Mulch perennial Pentas before winter to help insulate them against the winter cold.
