Penstemon Husker Red
This penstemon is unique because of its deep burgundy to purple and green foliage. Summer blossoms of white (sometimes with a slight pink accent) come alive against the rest of the plant. Husker Red is sought after for its great eye appeal, but it is also easy to grow and tolerates poor soils. This plant likes lots of sun and can grow to around 30" tall, and spreads to around 18" wide. They are very versatile and great for various forms of planting; place about 12" apart to start. Cold hardy to -30°F when protected from windchill.
