Some do not see the appeal of yet another purple penstemon. However, Penstemon 'Enor' is special. The broad shiny foliage is decidedly darker than any garden penstemon we have grown. In other words, this plant both looks and is robust, producing a generous display of medium-sized tubular flowers all season.

June to first frost.  3 ft. x 3 ft.

Purple flowers

Sun     Zones (7), 8, 9
All of the garden hybrid Penstemons need full sun and well-drained soil. We mulch the crowns with 1/4-10 crushed gravel which discourages crown rot by letting water drain off the crown quickly. When planting Penstemons we fertilize them only lightly and then never again. Over fertilizing Penstemons promotes the development of lush soft growth which leads to excessive die back in the winter.
