Penstemon 'Blackbird' is a bushy semi-evergreen perennial boasting incredibly pretty, bell-shaped, deep rich claret flowers. Grows to a height of 1m.
Penstemon are extremely hardy and a reliable performer in the heat of summer, plus they are frost tolerant, makes these beautiful cottage perennials suitable for a wide range of positions and soils. Preferring a full sun position, penstemon will also grow well in a shaded position but they might not flower as prolifically as if they were in the sun. Maintenance is simple, lightly prune at the start of each spring.
Excellent cut flower.
