Penstemon Purple Passion is a bushy cultivar with lance-shaped, mid-green leaves and, from midsummer into autumn, upright racemes of tubular, deep purple flowers with white centres. It is a standout colour and is, in fact, one of the darkest Penstemons available. An excellent cut flower that is also loved by butterflies and other pollinators.
Once established Purple Passion is quite drought tolerant and enjoys either full sun or partially shaded position. This is a lovely plant that has a striking impact in garden beds, cottage gardens and rock gardens. It is also quite tolerant of most soils and does not require fertilising. Deadhead to maintain the vigour of the plant and encourage further flowering. Leave foliage on over winter to prevent damage from frost and then cut back in early spring which will encourage new growth.
