UK: Double HTA award win for Earley's Penstemon Pentastic

The Penstemon Pentastic Red and Penstemon Pentastic Rose have both picked up bronze awards in the ‘Herbaceous Perennials’ category at the 2017 HTA New Plant Awards. Pentastic was introduced this year to extend the already comprehensive Earley Penstemon range and support the growing popularity of perennials.

Programmable and fast-growing, Pentastic requires no extra pinching, spacing or PGRS. It is also a particularly good option for retailers looking to extend summer sales and for end-customers wanting plants that will flower into the autumn months, with the flowers re-blooming a few weeks later with pruning.

Bred in the UK by Fred Yates, Pentastic is disease tolerant, has a naturally compact habit and is self-branching with short flower spikes.

Commenting on the double win, Earley Ornamentals managing director, Simon Earley, said: “As a UK independent, we’re always keen to nurture UK-bred choices and Pentastic is already proving a commercial success with our growers, retailers and landscapers.”

“There’s been real growth in interest in perennials so much so we’ve introduced a dedicated Perennial catalogue this year in addition to the main Earley Ornamentals 2017-18 catalogue.”
