Penstemon 'Electric Blue'
Vivid spikes of tubular electric blue flowers smother this compact penstemon for months on end. Native to sunny California, the neon flowers light up the garden from mid-spring and continue well into autumn after a midseason trim. The attractive fine-textured foliage grows as a small evergreen shrub that benefits from a trim for shape once flowering ends in late autumn. This sun loving plant performs in parched soil once established.
drought-tolerant once established, penstemons are easy care perennials for most conditions, preferring a full sun, free-draining position. Water regularly during dry periods for improved flowering and performance. Prune back to a low mound after flowering to maintain a compact habit.
