We will be the first to admit that Penstemon are not particularly easy plants to grow in the Northeast. They are easy in their first growing season, but they need fertile yet exceptionally well-drained soil in order to establish successfully. They also need some level of protection from drying spring winds. We think they are worth the effort as they make a wonderful addition to the low-water garden. Additionally, it is easy to maintain a continual supply by taking cuttings. 

This variety offers beautiful deep red foliage and large panicles of attractive pinkish-white flowers.
