Native to Mexico its a shock that this large everblooming Penstemon thrives in our climate. Multiple bushy spikes support 1/2″ wine red tubular flowers- en masse. It remains in bloom from early June to frost- never quite knowing when to quit. To 2′ x 2′ making a semi-woody framework. Full sun and well drained soil with light, consistent summer irrigation. Remove spent flower spikes and they will quickly be replaced. Loved by hummingbirds. Cut back hard in early spring.
