Penstemon 'Midnight'

Penstemon 'Midnight'


Penstemon 'Midnight' is a semi-evergreen perennial, the dark purple stems to 70cm high carry deep-green lance-shaped leaves and forms an upright clump. Profuse, tubular to bell-shaped deep purple-blue flowers flushed violet with a white throat heavily marked plum are carried through summer.


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.
