Penstemon 'DAKOTA(™) Burgundy'
Common Name: Beardtongue, DAKOTA(™) Burgundy
Glossy, purple black leaves are eye-grabbing on this very hardy perennial. Lovely lavender to violet flowers emerge in June, which are loved by hummingbirds.
Shorter and more compact than 'Dark Towers' or 'Mystica', this variety is tough and long lived.
