I grew this red Penstemon from a single cutting at Capel Manor College 2 years ago. A success story in propagation but a failure in pleasure! I was given the cutting by the course tutor and had no idea what the flowers would eventually look like. The truth is - I loathe red flowers! I like deep rich and plummy reds but have a distinct dislike of scarlet reds. They have their place in certain types of garden but not in mine!
