Pensham Amelia Jane Penstemon

Penstemons are really useful plants, and Pensham Amelia Jane is no exception. This lovely cherry pink variety flowers its socks of all summer long and well into autumn and will bring height and valuable vertical structure to your planting schemes. One of the best of our UK grown Penstemons for sale.

The flowers of Pensham Amelia Jane are rich cherry pink with white throats; a little like later-flowering foxgloves, the individual blooms are tubular and held on tall, elegant stems that grow to around 90cm. It flowers from June through to October, and is a huge draw for all kinds of bees. The foliage is mid-green and linear, and – usefully – semi-evergreen.

In the garden

Plant your penstemons in full sun or light shade, so a south or west-facing border is ideal (although they'll do well in pots on a sunny patio, too). Dig in plenty of well-rotted garden compost or manure when planting to enrich the soil. The middle or towards the front of a cottage-style border is the best place for your penstemons.

Cut penstemons back in spring (divide and replant sections in spring too) or they'll become leggy and woody. Keep snipping off spent flower stems and they'll carry on blooming until the first frosts. Then it's time for a generous mulch of well-rotted manure or compost to protect the roots over winter. If you live in a particularly cold area, it can be worth moving plants into a greenhouse – although penstemons will survive all but the harshest of winters.

Penstemons combine well with many more cottage garden favourites, such as lavender, salvias, nepeta, lady's mantle and roses – pick a rich claret shrub rose such as Darcy Bussell for a stunning colour-saturated combination.

In containers, penstemons will thrive as long as they're in a sunny spot and kept well watered.
