Rocky Knoll Farm
Firebird is one of the most vibrant penstemons available. Deep crimson stems make the bright red summer blossoms stand out in very unique way. Mix in the rich green foliage and you have a truly fantastic display in any garden. The color combinations are so dynamic that it makes it a challenge for camera lenses to focus properly and capture the total beauty.
Easy to grow, Firebird shows off its special blossoms starting as early as spring and continues to bloom into autumn, depending on growing conditions. Hummingbirds and bees love this perennial delight. This penstemon is known to be heat and drought tolerant once established.
Reaching up to 3' tall x 2' wide. Place this plant in full sun, but it can take some shade. We recommend trimming back after the first bloom to stimulate increased flowering through summer. It is also good to trim in autumn after the last blooms are spent, which will help promote a healthier growth habit next season. Hardy to -10°F when protected from windchill.
