    It's a penstemon, Martin.

    Yes, you can take cuttings and this is recommended as they aren't all that hardy.  Look under propagation at the RHS penstemon page:


    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Hi Martin

    its a penstemon. If its in a sheltered place in your garden they can survive the winter. I have 4 in different places in the front and back gardens and so far they have come back every year. To be on the safe side, take cuttings.

  • can i seperate these now and plant on?
