This was bought to replace an old plant which succumbed to last winter's weather. On arrival the plant appeared all right, if not very robust, and unfortunately it appears not to have survived, although it was immediately planted into a slightly larger pot. Maybe it will recover, but I rather doubt it.

Sadly the plant didn't survive the hot dry summer! Kept it well watered. I've never lost a penstemon yet! A first for everything! Shame it was a lovely colour.
