Penstemon Pensham Czar

If you're after value for money in your plants, look no further than Penstemon Pensham Czar - it flowers for an incredible five months from June-October! It's a real beauty, with bright purple, bell-shaped flowers outside and around the lips, with a white throat although if purple is not part of your colour scheme have a look at the rest of our UK grown Penstemons.

Growing to 90cm tall, Czar penstemons are semi-evergreen with mid-green, narrow leaves with good slug resistance; a blessing for organic gardeners. They also stand up well to drought when established, so keep them where you can see them to appreciate the delicacy of the flowers - near a seating area on the patio - they're also great in pots.

Ideal for sun or partial shade, the only thing they won't tolerate is cold, wet feet in winter - add grit when planting to improve drainage and avoid clay soils - grow instead in containers or raised beds.

Great In Your Garden...

The Pensham Series of Penstemons are extremely versatile - they'll put up with exposed and coastal gardens - plant them along with both early and late summer perennials and their long flowering period will provide a bridge between the two. Think lupins and foxgloves on one hand and Japanese anenomes on the other.

If your garden has heavy clay soil, plant in large containers - hostas will happily shelter under Penstemons and they look excellent together, especially in partial shade.
