More Details

I love these new to the market, super-tall, prairie-style perennials. They are super-delicate, tiered raindrop style penstemons, airier and more natural than those usual hybrid forms. And they're perfect, ethereal and beautiful, cut for a vase.

'Twizzle Coral' is a wonderful colour, particularly when backlit when you most see the contrast between the rich stems and luminous bells. My favourite Twizzle!
