Comments about High Country Gardens Penstemon barbatus Elfin Pink:
Thus is a beautiful penstemon and a great addition to gardens with lots of sun and high temperatures. Does not do as well in part shade.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Avid Gardener
I was late in getting these planted last spring, but they were blooming heavily by the end of the summer. This spring they are growing well. The flowers are a nice shade of pink.
Tips for growing Penstemon (Beardtongue)
Penstemon are generally evergreen and have beautiful flowers that are very attractive to hummingbirds. Most varieties are rabbit resistant.
*To keep penstemon that have finely textured or matted evergreen foliage looking their best, you'll want to 'deadhead" them. Shear off the fading flowering spikes just as the plant is going out of flower. Gently bunch the flower spikes together with one hand and cut them off at the point where they go down into the mat of foliage with your clipper in your other hand.
Recommended for the following varieties: P. pinifolius types (‘Compactum', ‘Mersea Yellow', ‘Nearly Red', ‘Magdalena Sunshine' and ‘Tall Orange Mix'), as well as Penstemon linarioides v. coloradensis and Penstemon virens ('Blue Lips').
