Penstemon palmeri x grinnellii
Spring Blossom Penstemon
Type: Herbaceous Shrub, 2.5'h x 3'w
Flowers: Spring to Fall
Flower Color: Lavender, Purple
Likes: Full Sun
Appears to be a cross between P. palermi and P. Grinnellii.
Palmeri has one of the most beautiful light pink flowers but is not long lived. This one, although not as light pick as Palmeri, has very attractive flowers with more adaptability to the local Central Valley/Foothill areas.
Mid-sized for a larger Penstemon.
Cut back annually to keep good basil shoots growing and longer lived flowers.
