Pike's Peak Purple Penstemon

Plant Features

Pike's Peak Purple is a strong grower with attractive glossy green foliage from which beautiful grape-colored flowers with white striped throats bloom over a long period throughout summer and into fall. Occasional shearing encourages re-bloom for this heat resistant plant. Known to attract butterflies, plants require good drainage in winter for successful overwintering.
