Penstemon x mexicali 'Pike's Peak Purple'


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
A plant that has proved its worth over the years performing beautifully at the Denver Botanic Garden handling not only summer heat but winter cold. A hybrid which gets to just 18" tall or a tad more with lots of rich purple flowers for nearly 2 months in early summer. Thanks to Ian of Desert Northwest for turning us on to this goodie.
