Penstemon pinifolius


Pineleaf Beard-tongue

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.405.250


A species of Beard-tongue native to the Southwestern USA, this grows well in most regions except for the humid South. It forms a low, bushy mound with green leaves that resemble pine needles. Tubular flame-orange flowers appear in early to midsummer, and are a magnet for hummingbirds. Because this plant is woody at the base, prune no lower than 4 inches in spring. Gorgeous in a rock garden or dry border, and looks particularly good with a mulch of gravel beneath. Evergreen in mild winter regions. Very drought tolerant once established. Well worth trying in Zones 3 or below.
