Penstemon ‘Parade of Parrots’

Oh, my goodness! Never has there been another Penstemon like this. Very upright, with strong stems to support and enormous floral display. There's nothing subtle about this penstemon. Strong, claret-colored flowers; the rich color is so saturated that even the seed heads are deeply blushed. Very healthy and a stand-out!
