Product Description
There's a lot to love about Red Penstemon. For starters, this native perennial flowers profusely from June to September with tubular, crimson-red blooms stealing the show in your sunny garden spots. It remains compact, reaching just 16-18 inches tall and can handle weather extremes like a champ—temps as low as -13 degrees F in the winter and not bothered at all by heat and humidity in the summer. Red Penstemon attracts butterflies and hummingbirds and is resistant to deer.It's a great choice for borders, cut flowers, container gardening and naturalized areas.
