Penstemon 'Flamingo' has large white-throated flowers with deep rosy lips. The upper lobes are very reflexed back over the white flower tube. All of this is shown off well by the somewhat stiff stems that hold the flowers up and out for viewing.

Summer.  3 ft. x 2.5 ft.

Rose and White flowers

Sun     Zones 7, 8, 9
All of the garden hybrid Penstemons need full sun and well-drained soil. We mulch the crowns with 1/4-10 crushed gravel which discourages crown rot by letting water drain off the crown quickly. When planting Penstemons we fertilize them only lightly and then never again. Over fertilizing Penstemons promotes the development of lush soft growth which leads to excessive die back in the winter.
