Product Description

Commonly called Beardtongue, Penstemon is a large native genus found over large areas of the US and Canada, especially in drier locations. It contains a wealth of flower colors and sizes, plant heights, and growth habits. 'Husker Red' is a white-flowered, red-foliaged form of P. digitalis that was selected and introduced in 1983 by Dr. Dale Lindgren, University of Nebraska. It is a versatile garden perennial, valuable as a specimen, or as a cut flower. When plants are well established, height averages about 30 inches, with as many as 50 white flowers on each of 20 or more open, airy, flower stalks during July and August. A super performer, Cherry Sparks Beardtongue, Penstemon, punches up the color with twice the flower power of other Beardtongues. Flowers appear for twice as long and are much larger than other perennial Penstemons. Luscious cherry red bells with white throats adorn tall 20″ stems for an incredibly long time, from late May into August. Sterile. Similar to its showy, large annual cousins, but reliably winter hardy in zones 5-9. Penstemons prefer full sun locations, at least 6 hours or so of sun per day, along with good drainage. For best results fertilize and keep spent flowers removed to encourage reblooming.
