Positive Todd_Boland On Jan 23, 2005, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

THis species is like a larger version of P. rupicola. Its flowers are pink on the inside and reddish-pink on the outside. It is a member of the Dasanthera section so forms an evergreen subshrub that prefers moister and more acidic soil than most penstemons. It does well in milder areas of E. North America. It is the most tender species in the Dasanthera section, hardy to zone 6 (most of the others are good to zone 4).
