Seaburngirl's Garden


Genus: Penstemon.

Species: Penstemon.

another genus that is happy in the semi shade. i have 2 un-named ones but some that I do know names for, 'Eveline' a fine leafed form with candy pink flowers, 'Snowflake' a clean white flower and George V and wider leaf rich pinky red. all still have good foliage on despite the 6'' of snow.

I also have P.digitalis 'husker red' but I'm not too keen on it. it hasnt over wintered very well but I'll see how it goes over the next 3 months.

feb 09 took charge of 'pensham' varieties, laura, czar and amelia jayne. will be interested to see how they will perform. planted in the shed border july09.
