Penstemon 'Mystica' Plants

Penstemon 'Mystica' Plants

Offering smooth dark foliage topped with white blooms that have a lavender blush, Mystica, is a workhorse plant.  This clump forming perennial produces a large flush of flowers in early summer and if trimmed may rebloom in the fall.  Once frost occurs in fall the leaves turn a brilliant red.  In warmer zones the foliage will not turn red but will remain an attract purple hue, with colder temperatures providing more saturation.   A good choice for the mixed garden border.   Has some drought tolerance when established but does better with even moisture.  Not a favorite food for deer but they may browse on them.  Loved by butterflies and the occasional hummingbird.
