Thompson & Morgan Urban Garden Flowers Penstemon Huskers Red 35 Seed

£2.99

Penstemon - Huskers Red

This has been a plant collector's item for decades. Husker Red is an unusual Penstemon offering maroon-red, occasionally bronze-green foliage when grown from seed. This is coupled with contrasting spikes of blushed pink flowers making useful late summer colour for borders.

Height: 50-75cm.

Sow from February to April in pots or trays of moist seed compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Seal container inside a polythene bag and keep at a constant temperature of between 15-20C. After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination can take 1 to 4 months. When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm pots or trays. Plant out once plants are well grown, 3cm apart. For best results, provide a fertile, well-drained soil in full sun or part shade. Plants will prove reliably hardy if wet winter conditions are avoided.
