(syn: Rehmannia angulata, Rehmannia elata) Garden visitors quickly fall in love with this easy-to-grow groundcover member of the normally parasitic Orobanchaceae family. In loose, moist soils, Rehmannia piasezkii will spread to make a nice mat of closely-spaced rosettes. From late spring through midsummer, Rehmannia piasezkii is topped with 2' tall stalks dripping with massive, pinkish-purple, penstemon-like flowers...each with yellow specks deep in the throat. Flowering is heaviest in late spring, then sporadic in the summer...OUTSTANDING! Rehmannia is named in honor of the Russian physician, Joseph Rehmann (1799-1831).
