Plant Details

A tall Penstemon with spikes of large, bright scarlet-red tubular blooms with maroon-streaked white throats.

Equally at home in traditional cottage garden or contemporary displays, an ideal plant for the middle of the border. 

Border Penstemons are happy in pretty much any type of soil, in full sun or partial shade.

Height and spread: 90cm x 60cm

Penstemons can be divided into roughly two types. Border hybrids, which grow to between 60 and 80cm and are very colourful, and species Penstemons which are usually lower growing with smaller flowers. Nearly all originate from North America. Border hybrids tend to flower from June to October and species for a shorter period, earlier in the season.

Common name(s): Beard Tongue

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.
