Buy Penstemon 'Pensham Laura' (Pensham Series) beard tongue: A colourful display into autumn

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 (will need winter protection in cold areas)

    Each white trumpet-shaped flower flares out at the base, where it's lobed edges are coloured a vibrant lipstick pink. This creates a distictive, two-tone effect. The flowers form in loose clusters on upright stems, which open from the base upwards over a long period from midsummer. A prolific flowerer, it is hardier than many other penstemons and is even said to be resistant to slug damage. The pretty colouring of the flowers means it blends easily with many other shades, but it looks particularly good with deeper pinks, lilac and purple.

  • 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 and cut back in spring when new shoots appear low down on the stem. Lift and divide congested clumps in spring.

Beautiful vibrant pink flowers that have brought so many bees and butterflies to my garden. This has quickly moved up to one of my favourite flowers in the garden. I have mine in patio containers and they are thriving just fine in these.

These were generous sized plants which grew on quickly and gave a lot of showy flowers over a long season. They appear to have survived the winter. .

The traditional cottage garden was an intensive, yet carefree mixture of fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers all crowded into a tiny space. Today, this informal charm can be recreated using modern varieties that largely take care of themselves around an
