Description

An invaluable seed-grown penstemon which flowers non-stop from summer to winter.

The pollinators love it and with its stems seared in boiling water, it makes a jolly bunch of flowers.

Care Tips

Leave the current seasons growth on over winter to provide protection and mulch around the base of the plant in autumn with compost or leaf mould. Cut back old growth in late spring as new shoots are appearing.
