Penstemon 'King George V'
Penstemon 'King George V' is an upright perennial to 90cm tall, with lance-shaped leaves and bell-shaped crimson flowers with red markings in the white throat. An impressive perennial with presence, this hardy evergreen plant is best left until early spring after the risk of harsh frosts has passed before pruning back any dead stems and excess growth. Can reach heights of up to 100cm and spread up to 50cm, but in more Northern climes more likely 500cm x 300cm. Will tolerate any well drained soil, in sun or part shade. In colder areas protect with a mulch in winter.
