Plant Features

The aptly named Cherry Sparks Penstemon features tiny, bright red bell-like flowers that rise above the foliage on slender stems. The blooms are larger and last twice as long as with other penstemon. These sun and heat lovers need plenty of light and good drainage. They are also wonderful as a cut flower, so be sure to add a few to your indoor arrangements. Attract the butterflies and hummingbirds with these beautiful blooms!
