Product Information

A classic cottage garden perennial that is totally winter hardy and easy to grow. Perfect for beginners and experienced gardeners alike, you're guaranteed masses of spectacular flowers which can also be cut for your home.

Superb grown in beds and borders alongside other perennials or among ornamental grasses, Penstemon likes well-drained soil and forms large clumps in time, rewarding you with even more flowers.

Looking after them is easy; occasionally dead-head fading blooms to prolong the display and cover plants with a dry mulch of compost in late autumn to keep roots snug and protected from frost.

  • Penstemon Pensham Plum Jerkum - plum-purple flowers, with white mottled throats.
  • Penstemon Hartwegii Strawberry and Cream - pale pink tubular flowershave fine red stripes and a red throat
  • Penstemon Pensham Czar - bright purple with a solid white throat.

Care Information

  • Plants are best planted out in the summer, especially if your soil is clay as they dislike winter wet.
  • Penstemons do best in a warm, sunny position and are drought tolerant once established.
  • When planting, add well-rotted manure or compost to the planting hole.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry. They don't like to be left in standing water.
  • Plant approx. 20cm (8in) apart to allow them room to grow.
  • Water well until established.
  • Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
  • Dead-head when flowers fade to encourage more flowers.
