Plant Highlights

This Penstemon has gorgeous blue-purple flowers that put on a spectacular show starting in the spring and continuing through the summer. It does well in a variety of soils including clay and alkaline soils and is fairly cold hardy. This plant is a favorite with hummingbirds and would make a great addition to any garden but especially those hoping to attract hummingbirds.
