Penstemon 'Pensham Wedding Day' (Pensham Series)

Ivory-white bells crowd the upright stems for long periods, looking elegant despite the rain plaguing our UK summers! Clump forming plant, so perfect for borders or patio containers. Best planted away from cold winter winds. Resistant to slugs and snails, but loved by bees.

Plant Care

Keep well watered until firmly established. Plant into any average garden soil, avoiding wet areas. Trim off spent flower spikes and prune to shape in early spring.

Planting Instructions

Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a good, general fertiliser.
