Like all Penstemons, ‘Garnet’ (also known as Penstemon ‘Andenken an Friedrich Hahn’) is a freely flowering compact shrub with a bushy habit. It has a profusion of wine red flowers in late summer through to late autumn. The shrub grows to approximately 90 cm in height and 60cm in width. Penstemon ‘Garnet’ prefers a sunny aspect with moist but well drained soil. It will tolerate most frosts, and is one of the hardiest Penstemons. A medium prune and feed with Osmocote Outdoors Trees & Shrubs after flowering will keep the plant compact and healthy.
Penstemons are a great addition to any garden. They can be used as a specimen plant, tub plant, en masse for an eye catching affect or even as a low hedge. They look good interplanted with spring flowering perennials like Campanula ‘Cherry Bells’, Heuchera ‘Green Spice’, or as a backdrop to the small Lavenders like Lavandula ‘Plum’ or Lavandula dentata ‘Royal Crown’
Penstemon ‘Garnet’ is one of a range of Penstemons collected from around the world by Larkman Nurseries. Collect a range to add color and variety to your garden.
