It is pentas in white. There are two types,one normal grows upto 3'-4'
and with spreading habit and another dwarf grows upto 1.5'to 2' with
compact habit.Both have white,pink and red flowers. commonly grown in
little drier climate.in pune all shades and both the types are
available in most of the nurseries.nice plant for balcanies or home
gardens as well landscaped large gardens.
