There are many varieties of Penstemon this one is one of the prettier flowered kind. It is not fully hardy, but will survive in a sheltered spot. Penstemons flower over a long period, from mid-summer to the first frosts. It is worth taking some cuttings to overwinter in case they do not survive. There are penstemons for rock gardens or borders and stand alone plants. They like a rich sandy soil with plenty of water during the growing period.
