One of the largest-flowered and most colorful Penstemons yet, Esprit Mix offers a range of pink-, red-, and purple-toned blooms with crisp white eyes. Blooming the first year from seed if started early, it can be raised as an annual everywhere it isn’t hardy, and is quite drought-tolerant once established in the garden.
Esprit Mix offers 2-inch tubular blooms crowded along tall, very long-lasting stems. In flower the plant reaches 24 to 30 inches high in the sunny garden, a magnet for butterflies and bees. Native to the Great Plains, this happy-go-lucky perennial loves dry soil and doesn’t mind poor fertility, heat, or other stresses.
Spreading about a foot wide, Esprit Mix is a fine choice for containers as well as the sunny border. The foliage is silvery-green and held well below the blooms, in neat rosettes. Evergreen in mild climates, this is a hardy native plant you shouldn’t miss! Pkt is 100 seeds.
