We love anything Penstemon, this shorter species with hairy (tomentose) stems and abundant flowers is no exception. Loved by hummingbirds, bumblebees and butterflies, it is sure to be a nice addition to your garden. This is a new one for North Branch Natives, so please let us know how it grows for you.
Plants that grow well with hairy beardtongue: Echinacea pallida (pale purple coneflower), Bouteloua gracilis (blue grama), Sporobolus heterolepis (prairie dropseed)
