Tubular rose-pink flowers, adorning your garden until mid autumn

Flowering from mid-summer until mid-autumn, Penstemon Polaris 'Rose' features racemens of tubular pink blooms, which are offset beautifully by their white throats. The tall stalk and branching foliage of this perennial will add structure to a border, whilst its compact habit makes it perfect for a smaller garden. Often a gardener's favourite, Penstemons have a good tolerance to drought, and are hence known to flower through the driest of summers. To promote a long flowering season, remove any flowers that appear spent from their base.

About your plant

Our perennials and alpines are lovingly grown by our trusted nursery, based in England. Once ready, each flourishing plant will be dispatched directly to your home.

Packaging

Sustainability is one of our priorities, and as such, our perennials and alpines are delivered in environmentally friendly packaging. Aside from being recyclable, they will additionally keep them nice and secure on their journey.
How your order will arrive
Please see our below guidance on your perennial or alpine's care:

  • Watering: During your perennial or alpine's first growing season, you should provide them with frequent waterings. Try to also avoid wetting the foliage to reduce the risk of disease.
  • Deadheading: To promote a long flowering period, you should deadhead any flowers that appear spent. Simply rescind each flower at their base, taking care to not cut other parts of the plant.
  • Dividing: To really flourish, your perennials can be divided every three to four years. They can be divided when they begin to show less flowers, or appear less healthy in the middle. Make sure to only do so when they aren't currently flowering.

Please note: Herbaceous perennials can die back in winter, so don't be alarmed if this happens and instead look forward to spring!
