More About Dark Towers Penstemon...

Dark Towers is a show-off of a Penstemon that produces dark maroon foliage which provides a wonderful contrast to "towers" of soft-pink tubular flowers in loose terminal racemes atop erect, rigid, leafy stems. Butterflies and hummingbirds will flock to the flowers from late spring into summer. Foliage holds its color well throughout the summer.
