Description

The rarely offered yellow form of the normally red-flowered plant is quite unique. There are no other true-yellow penstemons in existence apart from this wonderful small evergreen shrub. As the name suggest, the small leaves are long and thin, rather resembling pine needles in fact. In a well-drained spot it makes a quite stunning long-lived specimen.

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
