How should I prune my penstemon? At the moment it is very leggy. Should I cut it down to the ground or just leave it?



Prune almost to the ground. I would probably leave it until the end of this month before doing so.

i would also take a few cuttings just incase you loose it,just snip the tops off and put a few in apot of compost,water in,clear bag over the top to give it a bit of warmth,pot on when rooted,bingo new plants for nothing,i take loads of cuttings every year from mine.
