Penstemon digitalis Pocahontas’

Everyone loves pollinator plants, and this penstemon from Brent Horvath of Intrinsic Perennial Gardens is a beauty! With dramatic dark red foliage and light pink lavender blossoms, this color contrast is simply irresistible.  What’s better is that it also attracts hummingbirds and butterflies.  Its upright habit of sturdy stems and long bloom time make Pocahontas a great option for use as cut flowers.

Hardiness Zone: 4-9
