Pink Penstemon

Penstemon

Penstemon top heavy

This pretty herbaceous perennial is floppy in my garden.  The pink tubular flowers are trying their best to show off from their horizontal view and the bees don’t seem to mind in the least.  Flower colors of penstemon come in white, yellow, pink and purple.  Height is between 8-24 inches and width 10-12 inches.  Bloom time is now (Spring and summer).   Grow  “Beard Tongue”  in full sun or partial shade.  This plant is drought tolerant and can be divided every two to three years.  Another great hummingbird flower.
