Penstemon “Twizzle” Coral
$32.00 $0.00 ( / )

Hands down the best thing about the cone-shaped blooms on "Twizzle" Coral is looking over at them by chance when you’re out in the garden and seeing a fuzzy little bumble bee butt sticking out of one, all busy and buzzy. Plus, it’s really pretty, native to the USA, and perennial.

How to Plant

Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Fill a little bit of the loose dirt back into the hole and tuck your plant in so the base of the stem is even with the top of the hole. Now fill in the rest of the soil around the roots, give the soft ground around the base of your new plant friend a few solid pats to compress the soil onto the roots, and a long, gentle drink of water.

Where to Plant

Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, in well draining soil.

When to Plant

Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon. Plant outside after your average last frost in the spring.

When to Expect Blooms

Spring until late fall. 

Care Instructions

Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells. Pick blooms to encourage more. 

Extra Credit

When your plant is about 9-12" tall you can pinch off the main growth tip to encourage a bushier plant with more blooms.
