How to grow Penstemon
Choose a sunny position with some shade sheltered from cold winds with well-draining soil Water well until the plants are established, then reduce to watering to keep the soil moist. Mulch with well-rotted manure or garden compost each spring to get the best growth results, and apply some general-use fertilizer if growing in containers.
