Penstemon digitalis 'Husker Red'

Common Name: Beardtongue, Penstemon

1996 Perennial Plant Association Plant of the Year!
Striking, maroon-red foliage with a dark green underlay distinguishes this Penstemon from the other cultivars. White flowers with a tinge of light pink are borne on strong, upright stems in early summer.

Penstemons are very drought tolerant perennials that are easy to grow and are rarely bothered by insects or diseases. Plant them in full sun and watch as hummingbirds feast on their delicious nectar.
