Discuss Penstemon 'White Bedder' (Penstemon 'White Bedder') with other Shoot members.
I pruned my penstamon to pretty near the ground today (November) and then subsequently read that I should be overwintering it and then pruning in Feburary. What are the implications of my 'wrong season' haircut?
As a new gardener, I'm never quite sure what 'dead heading means. Last weekend, I snipped off all of my salvias, hoping that this was the right thing to do and may result in a second flush of new flowers. Does the same thing apply to penstemons, or do I just pick off all of the dead heads? Help!!!!
