Excellent for containers, as an edging plant, or at the front of borders.

Design Ideas: Evoking the North American prairie, this compact and colorful penstemon stands out in mass plantings, especially in meadows and naturalized gardens, but is equally at home at the front of a perennial border, or in more formal bedding style gardening. A mainstay of the hummingbird and butterfly garden.

Provide well drained, moderately fertile soil. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Avoid overly wet winter conditions. Shear spent blooms to promote re-bloom. Cut back to the ground at season-end.
