Penstemon 'Alice Hindley' Overview

Penstemon 'Alice Hindley' is a semi-evergreen perennial that produces spikes of large, tubular, pale purple-blue flowers with white centres, in early summer to early autumn. This Penstemon has particularly large leaves. A very attractive clump-forming Penstemon, 'Alice Hindley' needs fertile, well-drained soil and some protection (by adding a dry mulch) in very cold winters. It is suitable for most flower beds and borders - especially cottage-style gardens. To keep Penstemon 'Alice Hindley' at its best, deadhead after flowering and cut back to the ground in early spring. Penstemons - of which there are many varieties - are often referred to as Beardtongues.
