Penstemon hartwegii Ice Cream™ Strawberries & Cream ‘Beardtongue’
Penstemons (beardtongue) are fantastic perennial flowering performers providing elegant spikes of trumpet shaped, foxglove-like flowers appear from throughout the summer and well into autumn among lance-shaped, bright green leaves. This vibrant, easy-to-grow perennial will quickly form large, leafy clumps bedecked by spikes of colourful flowers, which can be cut for the table and will continue to flower until the first frosts.
The trumpet shaped flowers are a magnet for bees.
