These have almost tubular pink flowers, but are not very large. This is a closeup – the flower cluster was only about 3 to 5 inches wide.

    You’re welcome byankle! With numerous varieties in hybridization, sometime these plants fool us or hiding in plain sight.

    Thank you, Laura. the angle had me confused as I was concentrating on the tubular aspect rather than the star shaped petals. The green leaves, though, sealed it.

    Maybe one of pentas ( Pentas lanceolata) pink varieties? Regrettably I can’t tell which one this is. Check out the ‘Butterfly Deep Pink’ cultivar from the link below. Best wishes!
