Product Description

Penstemons are an enduring classic cottage garden perennial with delightful bell-shaped flowers in a range of bright colours.

‘Ice Cream Strawberries and Cream’ is perfectly named, with sturdy upright spires boasting pink tinged, creamy coloured buds opening to delicious looking flowers in shades of pale pink and white with red and white striped throats. Flowering from June until October, these unusual Penstemons will be a real talking point in your garden!

Ideal for growing in beds and borders, Penstemons prefer well-drained soil in a sunny or partially shaded spot, forming clumps that grow larger each year. Completely winter hardy, you’ll be rewarded with a profusion of spectacular flowers which are also superb for cutting.

Looking after them is easy, occasionally deadhead fading blooms to prolong the display and cover plants with a dry mulch of compost in late autumn to protect the roots from frost.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come. Recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators' the flowers are a favourite with butterflies and bees.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant, growing to 75cm (30in) tall and 50cm (20in) wide.

Top Tips

Care Guide

  • To plant, firstly water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out some of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot then refill the hole with the earth removed.
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well before adding a mulch around the base of the plant.
  • Water regularly and feed every two weeks with a high potash fertiliser.
  • Deadhead regularly to encourage more flowers.
