Penstemon 'Cherry Glow' boasts cherry red flowers that are accented by purple calyces and red stems which make this an especially attractive addition to our penstemon collection. The white throat is muted by red guide-lines giving the flower an overall red appearance. The leaves are mid-width and about 4.5 inches long. They are dark green.

Summer to autumn.  3-4 ft. x 2.5 ft.

All of the garden hybrid Penstemons need full sun and well-drained soil. We mulch the crowns with 1/4-10 crushed gravel which discourages crown rot by letting water drain off the crown quickly. When planting Penstemons we fertilize them only lightly and then never again. Over fertilizing Penstemons promotes the development of lush soft growth which leads to excessive die back in the winter.
