I purchased Pentas this summer and they have bloomed beautifully. I wondered what I can do to keep them from dying this winter. They are perennials but I am not sure about my zone.

    I mulch mine really well and water before a freeze. I cut them back in the spring after threat of frost, and I have some come back for 3 years, and every year is bigger and better.
