My Penstemons flower the same year i grow them from cuttings, what part of the country do you live? I live in South Devon so maybe it's warmer than where you are.

What is your soil like,is it free draining or clay?

Penstemons like a sheltered but sunny spot in quite a free draing spot.

You are still ok to plant wallflowers, you can usually buy them from a garden centre or sometimes you can find them at a car boot sale.
