Grower Information:

Stays in colour…Really!
Lucky Star is bred for the fastest follow-up blooming of any full color series 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 full color series 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.
