With its loose bundles of exquisite, bell-shaped blooms atop upright, statuesque stems, it's easy to see how the Penstemon Pensham has remained an enduringly popular perennial amongst British gardeners. Well-loved for their vibrant colours and distinctive throat markings, Penstemon Pensham varieties are also celebrated for their impressive resistance to pests - despite the fact that they are incredibly attractive to bees! What's more, these versatile specimens are fully hardy with a long flowering period, blooming perpetually from June to October for months of enjoyment. Grow in containers for a dramatic patio display or add a touch of woodland wildness to the borders by planting contrasting colours alongside one another. Each pack of six is one each of Amelia Jayne (red/white), Czar (lilac/white), Plum Jerkum (purple), Just Jayne (pink), Laura (white and pink) and Wedding Bells (White).
