Penstemon 'Pensham Amelia Jane' (beard tongue)

Penstemon ‘Pensham Amelia Jane’ (beard tongue) was £6.99 now £5.99
Position: full sun or partial shade Soil: fertile, well-drained soil Rate of growth: average Flowering period: July to October Flower colour: red with a white throat Hardiness: borderline hardy (may need winter protection) Originally bred by Edward Wilson, of Pershire Plant Raisers, the Pensham Penstemons were bred to withstand lower temperatures and inclement weather, as well as produce beautifully coloured flowers for a longer period than most of the other varieties. This is one of the most popular forms, with large, white-throated, cherry-red flowers, that appear on upright stems for many months from midsummer. It looks spectacular when planted in swathes through a late summer border, where its sizzling colour will add oomph to ‘hot’ themed beds. 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.
