Penstemon Digitalis - Husker Red
Beetroot-coloured stems and foliage form a superb background to the swaying stems of rosy-lipped, palest pastel pink tubular flowers. This imposing and unusual-coloured foliage plant may be seen at its best where it can contrast with other paler flowers.
For best results, sow seeds onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Although they can be sown at any time, these seeds may sometimes wait for spring before emerging, but spring sowing will obviously give them a full season of growth.
