Description

Sophisticated elegance, coupled with real staying power! These bushy, hardy perennials form neat semi evergreen clumps, with long summer displays of trumpet-like florets. Penstemon 'Husker Red' is distinctly different, with ruby-red foliage, and blush-white flowers.

Penstemon plants are known for being tough, reliable perennials, which will flower all summer long and into autumn. Penstemon 'Husker Red' also battles through rain and drought, and is remarkably slug resistant too. A classic cottage garden plant. Height and Spread: 50cm (20").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow penstemon in a sunny or semi shaded position on fertile, well drained soil. Penstemons can tolerate dry soils once established but dislike heavy soils that are particularly cold and wet in winter. Improve heavy soils by adding plenty of coarse grit prior to planting.
More Info
Feed and water penstemons regularly until they are fully established. Once established they are reasonably tolerant of drought and will require little maintenance. Deadhead faded penstemon flowers to maintain the plant’s vigour and encourage further blooms to be produced. In cold areas apply a dry mulch of bark chips of straw around the crown of each plant in autumn. Leave the old foliage intact until spring to protect plants during winter.
