Like all Penstemons, ‘Firebird’ (also called Penstemon ‘Schoenholzeri’) is an attractive shrub with an upright habit. It is a vigorous grower that produces a profusion of trumpet shaped red flowers in mid summer through to mid autumn. The shrub grows to approximately 90 cm in height and 60cm in width. Penstemon ‘Garnet’ prefers a sunny aspect with moist but well drained soil. It will tolerate moderate frosts. A medium prune and feed with Osmocote Outdoors Trees & Shrubs after flowering will keep the plant compact and healthy.
Penstemons are a great addition to any garden. They can be used as a specimen plant, tub plant, en masse for an eye catching affect or even as a low hedge. They look good interplanted with bright flowering perennials like Salvia Blue Lightning, Felicia ‘Gold Dust’, or as a backdrop to the small Lavenders like Lavandula ‘Plum’ or Lavandula viridis ‘Beverly’
Penstemon ‘Firebird’ is one of a range of Penstemons collected from around the world by Larkman Nurseries. Collect a range to add color and variety to your garden.
