Penstemon ‘Prairie Dusk’


Beard-tongue

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.405.070


Beard-tongues are native North American wildflowers, available in a surprising range of colours, heights and textures. This hybrid selection was developed in Nebraska, chosen for its hardiness and ease of growth. Plants form a low clump of green foliage, with upright spikes appearing in early summer. Flowers are vivid purple trumpets, attractive in the border and useful for cutting. Combines well with the pink form ‘Elfin Pink'. Both are excellent low-maintenance perennials, especially for hot, dry sites. Attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds.
