Hi @Gardengus ,

@Calif_Sue told me to post this.

This and the other flower photo posted here are not of the trademarked cultivar called Starcluster™ Lavender.
(How they were allowed to trademark an often used common name for this species, I can't imagine. Rolling my eyes. )

Starcluster™ Lavender has larger flowers in more congested clusters and the color is lighter.

I've grown it for two years and it should look like these photos:

If the exact cultivar in unknown, then it should be moved to the generic Pentas lanceolata entry.
Star Flower (Pentas lanceolata)

Now, lets see if I can actually remember to get a photo this year. Whistling

Thanks! Smiling

I moved the images to the general pentas entry since we have not heard back from original poster.
