Plant Features

Red Rocks Penstemon Plant is another 1999 Plant Select winner and is also a hybridized Beard-tongue developed by plant breeder Bruce Meyers. Named after a famous amphitheater that was carved out of the red sandstone cliffs in the foothills of Denver, this vigorous grower produces deep, rosy-pink flowers with contrasting white throats that rise on stems above mounds of shiny, narrow leaves. Known to attract butterflies, these heat resistant flowers are the color of the sandstone as the sun rises and sets over Red Rocks exquisite!
