Penstemon hybrida MissionBells Deep Rose

Hybrid Beard-tongue

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.405.240

(=‘Balmibepro’) Hybrid Beard-tongues are the showiest varieties by far, putting on a terrific display of colour in the summer and fall months. Plants form a bushy upright mound, bearing numerous spikes of deep rose, tubular flowers with contrasting white throats on dark stems. Much hardier than thought when originally introduced. Excellent in pots and tubs, as well as directly in the garden. Attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
