Penstemon Electric Blue
True blue is difficult to find in the plant world, but this variety provides showy clusters of intense azure-blue blooms on 18 inch stems throughout summer. Blue adds a cool, calm effect in the garden and is an ideal accent for pastels and white. A natural repellent to deer, yet hummingbirds and songbirds find penstemon irresistable. Although a perennial hardy to zone 5, started early, Electric Blue will bloom the first year from seed in June through September. Penstemon enjoys well drained soil in full to part sun and makes excellent cut flowers. Pkt. 25
