Penstemon barbatus 'Rock Candy® Blue'

Commonly called Beardtongue, penstemon is a large group of flowering herbaceous perennials that are mainly native or cultivated to the eastern half of the United States and a large portion of North America in general. Often rated as one of the best pollinators, Penstemon feature large flower spikes covered with small, tubular flowers that bloom in a variety of colors in spring and early summer. They are popular with pollinators due to their tubular shape; pollinators with long tongues can easily reach and harvest the nectar.  Penstemon do well in dry, hot settings, but can thrive in nearly any soil condition so long as they are getting sun.

'Rock Candy® Blue' is a cultivated variety of penstemon. Although cultivar, it is still highly beneficial to wildlife. It grows shorter at 12" tall and 12" wide. Great for a front or second row layer in a pollinator bed. It features dark purple-blue tubular flowers atop deep green foliage that remains all year and past frost. It will provide great foliage interest in your garden, as well as be an incredibly beneficial pollinator. Strong attractor of hummingbirds and long-tongued bees, like bumblebees and honeybees.

Pairs well with: Asclepias tuberosa, Rudbeckia, Monarda, Eupatorium and Solidago.

Arrives to you in a 1 gallon pot, as shown.
