Quick Overview:

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. The dark color of the foliage is most pronounced in direct UV sunlight. This variety’s dark foliage can be enjoyed all season, but in bloom, the overall effect is stunning.

Rich lavender purple flowers have pure white interiors and are produced on dark stems just above the foliage. An improvement on other varieties, this superior selection boasts a fuller, more refined habit, more vibrant flower color, and a more consistent, floriferous flowering performance

Description

Penstemons prefer full sun locations, at least 6 hours or more of sun per day, along with good drainage. For best results fertilize and keep spent flowers removed to encourage reblooming.
