Penstemon Ice Cream Collection

Penstemon Ice Cream Collection

OUT OF STOCK
Few plants are more reliable than the Penstemon, and the Penstemon Ice Cream series is no exception. Celebrated for their extreme hardiness, resistance to slug damage and excellent tolerance to most weather conditions, these deliciously colourful specimens make a delightfully low maintenance additions to any border. Each of the four varieties in our specially chosen collection produce lush, glossy foliage and orderly clusters of silky, tubular flowers on tall stalks, reminiscent in stature to that of the Foxglove. As their name suggests, these bell-shaped blooms come in a variety of candy colours each with distinctive throat markings, and will emit a subtly sweet fragrance making them excellent plants for bees! Why not plant together in an informal border for a beautiful cottage-style display? Includes Strawberries & Cream (white blushed pink with red markings), Sweet Cherry (red and white) and Blackberry (dark purple). Grows to a mature height of 60 ? 70cm. UK-grown 3cm jumbo plug plants supplied. Please note this collection was previously sold as M350 but due to stock issues will now include four each of three varieties (Strawberries and Cream, Blackberry and Sweet Cherry).
