Penstemon digitalis ‘Husker Red’
CT DR P
A much loved and long-blooming perennial with deep bronze-red leaves and 2-3’ spikes with profuse small white bell-shaped flowers attached to dark rose-wine stems in June. Grows to 2-2.5 feet tall, and 1.5-2 feet wide. Prefers sun to part shade, and average to dry soils. Drought tolerant. Flowers attract hummingbirds, butterflies and other pollinators for nectar. Songbirds such as cardinals and goldfinch eat ripe seed from the flower stems in fall and winter. This taller variety can stand alone or is attractive grouped together. Great as a cut flower!
