Fiery red flowers above neat foliage make this a most desirable alpine.
Ideal for rockeries, gravel gardens and pots.
Penstemons can be divided into roughly two types. Border hybrids, which grow to between 60 and 80cm and are very colourful, and species Penstemons which are usually lower growing with smaller flowers. Nearly all originate from North America. Border hybrids tend to flower from June to October and species for a shorter period, earlier in the season.
Common name(s): Pine-leaved Penstemon
