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! Grape Taffy produces large bell like blooms over 2 months of flowering with multiple spikes on a fuller bush than older penstemons. Flowers have large purple mauve lips with a striking white throat for dramatic contrast. Also available are Blueberry Taffy (Lavender Blue with White Throat) and Strawberry Taffy (Pink 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
