We fell for Penstemon 'Pershore Pink Necklace' (Pershore College, 1995) when we first saw it in the garden of Peter James in 1997. The characteristic band of rose pink circling the lips of the flower is interrupted part way by a necklace of white ringing the lips. The broad foliage is medium green.

Summer to autumn.  3 ft. x 3 ft.

Rose Pink/White flowers

Sun     Zones 7, 8, 9
All of the garden hybrid Penstemons need full sun and well-drained soil. We mulch the crowns with 1/4-10 crushed gravel which discourages crown rot by letting water drain off the crown quickly. When planting Penstemons we fertilize them only lightly and then never again. Over fertilizing Penstemons promotes the development of lush soft growth which leads to excessive die back in the winter.
