More Details

I love these new to the market, extra tall, prairie-style perennials. They are super-delicate, tiered raindrop style penstemons, airier and more natural than those usual hybrid forms. And they're perfect, ethereal and beautiful, cut for a vase. This one has rich, deep purple airy spires.
