Our Penstemons were originally bred by Edward Wilson of Pershore, Worcestershire and are hardier plants more resistant to damp and colder conditions. Selecting an elegant Penstemon for your garden will ensure masses of colour for up to six months of the year, they are hard working, beautiful and easy to grow plants. Will brighten borders in late summer particularly as they will reliably bloom and will attract lots of pollinating insects into the garden. They come in a diverse range of colours and heights. To prolong flowering remove spent flower stems. Don’t cut back in at the end of season, wait for the spring and cut back by about a third, this will help protect the new stems. Autumn mulching with dry material is also helpful. Plant in full sun or partial shade, drought tolerant once established. Penstemon Apple Blossom has rosy pink buds open out to reveal white throats with linear markings and with pale pink outer edges. Height 90cm and spread 60cm.
