One of my favorite garden plants. Do not die if we have warm winters. Butterfly magnets!

Hi, I also have a Penta. I Love it!! When I first bought it, it as only about 4 inches high. Thats was 1 1/2 years ago!! But , now its only a Foot High?? I have read that it grows Much, Much bigger than that. I was just wondering?? Shouldnt mine be as big as yours, and I dont have as many blooms?? Also, do you fertilize?? How old are your Pentas?? They are Just So Beautiful!!! Thanks.
