Tall, dark and handsome!
Perennials with interesting foliage have always appealed to me and when designing gardens, I always think about foliage colour and form. I am excited to be growing this lovely new variety of Penstemon or Beardtongue. Plants form a sturdy clump of deep burgundy-purple foliage, which really stands out and is a great contrast to other foliage. When the flowers grow in early to mid summer, the overall effect is stunning. Flowers are rich lavender-purple with pure white interiors and are absolutely gorgeous.
This superior selection of Penstemon boasts a fuller, more refined habit, more vibrant flower colour and a more consistent flowering performance than other older varieties. Plant in full sun and watch as hummingbirds and bees visit to feed.
