A gorgeous, hardy perennial that produces large, showy bright red bell-shaped blooms that have distinctive white markings at their throats. Fewer plants are more reliable than the Penstemon, and the Penstemon Sweet Cherry variety is no exception. Celebrated for their extreme hardiness, resistance to slug damage and excellent tolerance to most weather conditions, these fantastic specimens make a delightfully low maintenance addition to any border. Grows to a mature height of 60 to 70cm. UK-grown 3cm jumbo plug plants supplied.
