what colour is Penstemon barbatus Rondo

On plant Penstemon barbatus



Various reds

Rondo isn't a variety, it's a hybrid mix of various colours - lavender, pinks, purples and blues - so it's pot luck as to the flower colour of any individual seed-grown plant.

As always, all the info from Ilex there - you can get a mix of just reds though, but they won't all be the same shade of red.

You're quite right Bamboo, reds are indeed also amongst the colour possibilities!

The full name of these plants is: Penstemon barbatus var. praecox f. nanus 'Rondo' by the way, which translates to: the miniature form of the early-flowering variety of bearded 5-stamen......catchy huh! :-)
