To keep pentas alive year after year,they must be brought inside so won’t freeze! Will they last to be replanted in spring?

Pentas plants are frost-sensitive and will not survive winters in USDA zones 8a outdoors, but to save the plants you can overwinter them indoors in containers. Dig up the plants in fall and pot them up in containers. You can also grow pentas plants year-round indoors in bright light.
