Additional InformationOverwatering young plants can be detrimental. Let the compost dry out before re-watering and give plenty of ventilation. Once established, dead-head regularly to encourage further flowering. Slug and rabbit resistant. Cut back in late spring, not autumn, to 25cm to encourage basal growth. For autumn deliveries please pot on 4 weeks and if the weather is good then you can pop then in the garden, with an extra mulch. If cold then please pop in a sheltered spot for overwintering in pots for the winter. Propagate by taking cuttings from non flowering shoots in summer.***Please note that for Penstemon Dark Towers that unlicensed propagation is prohibited. ******* Hardy perennial.
