Propagate by taking cuttings from non flowering shoots in summer.***Please note that for Penstemon Dark Towers that unlicensed propagation is prohibited. ******* Hardy perennial.

"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"
