One of the interesting aspects of plant selection is the ability to take a well known and loved variety and breed something new and special, enhancing the traits of the parent! Penstemons are well known and reliable cottage perennials, but take a closer look at the Taffy Series! Penstemon ‘Boysenberry Taffy’ produces large bell like deep berry wine blooms with a smaller white throat, over many months of repeat flowering flushes. Multiple flower spikes appear on a fuller bush than older penstemons. Flowers have numerous large trumpets with a striking white throat. Also available are Strawberry Taffy (Dark Pink with White Throat) Blueberry Taffy (Blue with dark veining) Watermelon Taffy (pale watermelon pink) and Grape Taffy (Mauve with White Throat) Plant in clumps for a romantic cottage effect!
Dead heading of spent flower spikes will cause additional laterals to form. Prefer average well drained soil, do not mulch over crowns. Drought and humidity tolerant
