Flowers in the raised planting beds on the North side of Tydings Hall
Ruth's Pink Pentas is an unusually large flowered and leaved Pentas that is an heirloom plant that has been saved by Rita Randolph of Rita's Rare Plants of Jackson Tennessee. The flowers are an intense, fluorescent pink color. Here it is combined with a relatively new plant on the market, Cosmic Flare Gomphrena that has bright golden leaves. Cosmic Flare was introduced by Plants Nouveau.
