Penstemon  Geoff Hamilton

Penstemon

Beard Tongue

Among the most exuberantly blooming plants this side of the Mississippi, Penstemon is part of the enchantment of the West. A member of the Snapdragon family, even cultivated varieties retain a natural air, with dainty, long trumpet flowers and five (pent) prominent stamens.

Sturdy and easily grown, species vary from 1 to 5 ft. tall, and range in color from white to pink to purple to deep wine redone for every sunny spot. Trim after the first bloom to encourage a repeat flowering, and cut to the crown in winter for bushy growth next season.

Heralding summer with ample-sized wide-open trumpets, this lush looking Penstemon dresses the border in bright, yet deep shades of cherry-red. Long, somewhat broad, rich green leaves bolster the dazzling flowers, whose maroon and ivory throats appear especially luminous when backed by the late afternoon sun.

Blooms June – October.

Size: 2-1/2' high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 7.
