Penstemon Charles Rudd

$5.99

Penstemon Charles Rudd is another great penstemon, that is a survivor. At 60 cm. It is a sturdy plant for near the front of your border or that windy spot.

It is semi-evergreen and is best cut back late winter to early spring to allow the fresh narrow green leaves to emerge. From early summer to mid autumn the small tubular bell-shaped flowers are displayed in continuous succession.  The magenta-purple flowers with a white throat are held on attractive upright purple stems which compliment them perfectly.

Like most penstemons, P. Charles Rudd prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil but will tolerate most soils as long as they are not water- logged.

Tip. Penstemons do not require a fertile soil, just adding fertiliser at planting will suffice. Too much fertiliser will cause excessive die back in winter.

A robust and easy care penstemon, with beautiful magenta-purple flowers with a white throat,  Penstemon Charles Rudd will complement its neighbouring plants. The flowers are held on attractive upright purple stems. 60 cm
