Penstemon Digitalis "Huskers Red"

Sadly, this wonderful Penstemon is not seen enough.

It may have a messy basal growth habit, but were not looking at the ground! We're looking at the gorgeous small white (with a very slight pink tinge) flowers which are borne on stems of up to one metre. Add the contrasting chocolate coloured foliage and the fact that it's as hardy as they come, and you have to be on to a winner!

It's also very easy to grow from seed, grows into a large clump within a couple of seasons and doesn't require staking! It's just so easy, but also very rewarding!

So, there you have it...... Huskers Red!
