10" tall x 12" wide (cutting/seed propagated). This little scarlet wonder is a delightful dwarf version of the larger, more familiar Pineleaf Penstemon. The tiny evergreen needle-like leaves and short wiry stems form a tidy shrublet that seems to catch fire when the intense scarlet flowers smother the plant in late spring. Compact Pineleaf Penstemon blooms many weeks before the larger orange-flowered Pineleaf Penstemon.
