More Details

I love these new to the market, taller, 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. 'Twizzle Scarlet' has tall, straight spires in rich red.
