About This Plant
Sun. A perennial Texas penstemon, growing 1 1/2 to 2 feet tall with paired leaves and two-lipped flowers, also in pairs. In habit it’s a very small thin plant, but when in bloom (in spring) penstemon is spectacular. It’s long-lived in the native garden, and makes a great cut flower as well.
Penstemon are endemic to North America, though mostly in cooler latitudes. This is considered one of the genus’ most beautiful species.
Propagate via cuttings or seed. Allow it to re-seed before cutting old stalks.
