Penstemon Pensham Just Jayne


The late Edward Wilson has received many awards and accolades for his breeding of Penstemon. We are very highly honoured to be able to offer this special variety, named after Edward's main propagator. Apparently Edward had said he would name it after her, and when she said he couldn't call it Jayne Pullen he said he would call it Just Jayne.

Penstemon are the insomniac party animals of the plant world that do without sleep for six months of the year. Summer arrives and they start flowering, summer ends and they are still at it, autumn comes around and they still show no signs of tiring.

What other perennial is oblivious of drought or rain, resists slugs and other pests, positively thrives in most soil conditions in containers or borders, sun or part shade and propagates so painlessly?

Additional Information

Overwatering 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.

Hardy perennials are happy down to at least -5°C (23°F)
Half hardy perennials can withstand down to around 0°C (32°F)
And Tender perennials may be damaged by temperatures below 5°C (41°F)

Please remember that temperatures can vary significantly within quite a small area, and hardiness can be affected by soil, position and other factors.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
