Penstemon

'Pocahontas'

digitalis

PP#24,804

Burgundy foliage emerges in spring quickly followed in June by three to four-foot burgundy red stems holding loose clusters of purple-pink flowers. An irresistible combination judging from the guest reactions when we had it blooming near the office. The hummingbirds also had a taste and find it appealing. Prefers full sun and well-drained to rich soil.
