Keckiellas are shrubby penstemons. This one has numerous narrow red flowers. It is adaptable to various amounts of sun and water, but too much water shortens its life. When grown in part shade itforms a lax shrub that will twine through neighboring plants. In the sun it will be a more compact bush. Give it good drainage.
The Santa Cruz County California Native Plant Society dedicates the Spring 2021 Plant Sale in memory of Mike Luther, longtime plant propagation team leader extraordinaire. Many of the plants in this sale are the last Mike shepherded for our Chapter. Enjoy them with his good wishes.
Santa Cruz County CNPS gratefully thanks Suncrest Nurseries for their continued hosting of our propagation endeavors. Suncrest generously provides nursery space and materials, allowing us to bring more of CA’s native flora to your gardens.
