Plant Info

Plant this desirable perennial in a sunny or slightly shaded spot and you can enjoy a succession of brightly coloured bell-shaped flowers that are carried on short, upright spikes throughout summer and into autumn.

Superb grown in beds and borders alongside other perennials or among ornamental grasses, Penstemon likes well-drained soil and forms large clumps in time, rewarding you with even more flowers. Looking after them is easy; occasionally dead-head fading blooms to prolong the display and cover plants with a dry mulch of compost in late autumn to keep roots snug from frost.

Varieties Included: Penstemon Heavenly Blue, Penstemon King George V, Penstemon Snowstorm and  Penstemon Raven

- Service rating : Beautifully packed, and the main items in excellent condition, except for the penstemons..see below
Product : A lot of damping off, some of which had happened before they arrived. only about 50% success rate
-- Service rating : Do not answer any communications. Have even sent photographers of the dead plants but not had any response.
Product : 90% of the plants arrived dead and shrivelled up. Most had no life at all and the small amount of life in the few others was contained to the first 1cm. Some of the plants had been cut down to 1 cm in height. I am a professional gardener with many years of experience. These service and condition of the plants has to easily be the worse I have ever experienced in all my years as a professional craftsman gardener. If one was to come across theses plants in a garden centre one would not only not purchase them, but would never set foot inside the shop again. Worse plants I have ever come across any fit for the compost heap!
