Penstemon newberryi sonomensis

Mountain Pride.

We currently do not grow this plant.

A perennial, 12 inches in height, with two-inch, red flowers on two-foot-hight spikes in June-August. Native to Lake County area. It needs excellent drainage, full sun to part shade, a little summer water. A real pain in most places, great in its rocky element. Do not plant uless you know natives and live in a spot where it has a chance. It is very showy with large flowers and stunning when it is not dead. It is not cold hardy, nor does it tolerate summer heat. What makes it so difficult is that it also does not tolerate much summer water without getting root rot. Not for the East. Difficult!
