Large white foxglove-like flowers emerge from pink-flushed buds from July to October and really sing among the lance-shaped bright green leaves. If deadheaded regularly this wonderful white penstemon continues flowering until the first frosts. It's a handsome easy-to- grow perennial that will quickly form large leafy clumps and is perfect for lighting up the middle of a partly shady well-drained border. Grown in sun it looks particularly good with silver-leaved plants.

  • 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.
