Midnight Masquerade Beardtongue Penstemon

Penstemon digitalis ‘Midnight Masquerade’ PP29,603

This Penstemon will help fill the gap in your lineup for a taller, attractive foliage option. ‘Midnight Masquerade’ produces a sturdy clump of deep burgundy-purple leaves whose dark color is most pronounced in direct sunlight. Rich lavender-purple flowers have pure white interiors and are produced on dark stems just above the foliage. An improvement on other varieties, it boasts a fuller, more refined habit, more vibrant flower color, and a more consistent, floriferous flowering performance. Like all of our Penstemons, this one takes the heat and humidity in stride but is also very cold hardy. It continues to provide terrific color in the landscape all season long.
