Coming up among other things this clump is coming up 3 feet from the mother plant. It does spread but I have not had any a problem with it.
Hardy in Iowa & grows great in semi-shade. Handsome foliage with soft bell-like flowers.
Foliage can look colorful and impressive even when not in bloom.

End of March...young foliage of Penstemon Husker's Red
Mid May foliage in zone 6 - very fast growth once it warmed up. It's a little over a foot tall already.
