Plant Details

Not often offered for sale in the UK, this is a species of Penstemon from the mountains of Oragon and Northern California and is drought tolerant when established. Beautiful purple-blue flowers in late summer and early autumn. 

Penstemons really are fantastic plants for any garden. They don't seem to suffer from any pest or disease and even the slugs avoid them. On top of that, they flower for months on end, right into autumn when many other plants have given up for the winter. They look equally at home in a traditional cottage garden, or a stylish modern design.

Loved by bees.

Hardy in a well drained soil. Does best in full sun but will tolerate partial shade without problems. 

Height: 35cm

Common name: Azure Penstemon

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
