(syn: P. 'Schoenholzeri') This selection of penstemon (probably a hybrid of P. hartwegii and P. cobaea) is one of the most spectacular ones that we grow. The stems to nearly 3' are clothed in narrow glossy green leaves, then topped with dozens of very large bright red bells (RHS 50A). For us, P. 'Firebird' blooms heavily in the spring then sporadically through the summer and early fall...very spectacular!
