Penstemon 'Schoenholzeri', otherwise known as Penstemon hartwegii 'Firebird', is a clump-forming semi-evergreen perennial. Narrow green lance-shaped foliage covers the stems up to the wonderful racemes of crimson-red tubular flowers which appear in the summer. 

Keep deadheading this perennial as the flowers fade to encourage more flowers to develop.Do not be tempted to cut this perennial down before the winter, leave the top growth to protect it. In spring, after the last frosts have passed, cut the plant back hard. These gorgeous flowers look fantastic in any borders or beds. Happy to grow in any fertile, moisture retentive, free-draining soil, in sun or partial shade. 

H4 - Hardy through most of the UK (-10 to -5)
