Buy Penstemon 'Pensham Plum Jerkum' (Pensham Series) beard tongue: Bred to withstand lower temperatures

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to October
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

    From early summer to mid-autumn, upright flower spikes rise above the clumps of semi-evergreen foliage, bearing white-throated, plum-purple flowers. An invaluable late-flowering gap-filler, it mixes easily with ornamental grasses.

  • Garden care: Remove the faded blooms regularly to prolong flowering. Apply a dry mulch around the base of the plant to protect the roots from frost damage in autumn. Leave the old foliage to protect the new shoots from frost and then cut it back by a third in spring.

good plant for border or pot on the patio

Penstemeons are a very good plants in any garden. Providing you follow the instructions, any gardener can grow them and they plant(s) multiply easily and they flower most of the summer and into the autumn too. These plants I put in the middle of my border usually but this small plant I put in a pot on my patio. It flowered heavily the 1st summer and is very hardy and has multiplied (I will have to split it and put some back in the pot and some in the flower bed this spring already).

I am in love with this penstemon. I grow it as annual as, unlike Penstemon Garnet, it is impossible for it to survive the cold and wet Winter in a London clay garden. I buy 9cm pots early in Spring and by the end of Summer I get a goods show. I tired growing it in large planters and with Winter protection but it did not survive my resident squirrels' archeological antics. Bees adore it.

Planting companions for roses

Early flowering roses tend to come in shades of white, pink or purple-pink and most forms of the biennial foxglove, Digitalis purpurea, have toning flowers in similar colours. These appear in rose time, but carry on after the first rose flush has finished
