Penstemon x mexicali Red Rocks®

Beardtongue

Red Rocks® (‘POO85’) Beardtongue is a cross between Mexican and American Penstemons, which gives this selection its large showy deep pink trumpet shaped flowers. Penstemon Red Rocks® is a cross from Bruce Meyers and Plant Select® and shows more cold tolerance than many Penstemon mexicali crosses. The hot pink flower spikes are very attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies, and are a good addition to cut flower arrangements.
