Penstemon 'Rich Ruby'
Common Name: Beard Tongue Family: Scrophulariaceae (The Figwort Family)

Penstemon  'Rich Ruby'
Zoom In Photo:

Is it burgundy? Is it red? Is it magenta? Who knows? But it certainly is gorgeous. Large tubular flowers with white and red streaked throats are produced in great abundance through summer and often until frost. The foliage is large and lush. Remember not to cut back until spring - the foliage protects it through the winter. Penstemons are great for late summer colour so consider one, or a few, for your garden.
