This lovely species penstemon is ideal for naturalistic planting. Flowering earlier than border hybrid penstemons, Penstemon smallii also has larger, broader leaves that become flushed with reddish bronze over winter. In late spring and early summer, striking deep purple-bronze stems bear showy light purple blooms. Each has a white throat that is delicately patterned with darker purple. Native to woodland margins and rocky slopes, Small’s penstemon can cope with a semi-shaded position as well as full sun, and enjoys a free-draining soil. Height: 60cm (24in). Spread: 40cm (16in).
