Description


Penstemon Great Expectations is from the range of Pensham Penstemon, bred by the well known breeder Edward Wilson, said to be named because when seen in the trials grounds Edward's daughter commented that she though it had great expectations. Lilac mottled, trumpet-shaped blooms with white throat and lilac edges are held on strong stems from May to October, often longer. Penstemon have become incredibly popular and understandably so, as they have such an easygoing nature and unbelievably long flowering period and semi-evergreen foliage. They are trouble free and resistant to slugs and other garden pests. They spread to around 45-60cm (18-24'), are unfussy on soil conditions in sun or part shade, are happy in either borders or containers and attract pollinating insects into the garden. Height 70cm (28). Spread 45-60cm (18-24). Hardy perennial.
