HALF PINT® Pineleaf Penstemon

Penstemon pinifolius ‘Compactum'

Scarlet-red trumpet flowers call hummingbirds and butterflies from June to August. A profusion of flowers blooms right above a tidy mound of soft, needle-like foliage. Deadhead the flowers in late fall and HALF PINT® pineleaf penstemon will provide views of green plants throughout winter. HALF PINT® prefers a little elbow room in the garden to provide it with maximum sun and heat. Because it's native to Arizona and New Mexico, using small gravel mulch will make HALF PINT® at home in the garden.
