A very special little Penstemon and a real eye-catcher when in flower. The flowers are bright red and carried on tiny shrubs with wonderful, rich, plum-coloured foliage. The main flowering time is late spring / early summer.
It is fairly slow-growing and an ideal plant for growing in a stone trough or in one those special places on the rock garden. About 10 to 15 cm high at most (4 " - 6").
