Distinguishing traits. Plant firecracker penstemon and you'll have stunning flowers, winter color and versatility with little maintenance.Who wouldn't want to add a perennial that provides much-needed color to a winter landscape? Especially when there is not much else in bloom. Another bonus is that the vibrant orange-red flowers will last through spring. In cooler climates flowers appear during the warm months of summer. Don't let this colorful perennial's delicate appearance fool you; it isn't fussy. It needs no fertilizer and requires pruning only once a year to remove spent flowering spikes.
