Long blooming and long lived; plump yellow buds open to sky-blue flowers that mature to iridescent hues of blue, violet and purple. Extremely drought tolerant once established, BOP stands for ‘Bottom of the Porch’ where it was discovered at Las Pilitas Nursery in Santa Margarita, CA.
Penstemon Margarita BOP is a versatile perennial that tolerates a wide range of garden conditions. Prolific snapdragon-like flowers highlight the deep-green, fine, linear foliage. A cinch to grow – no pampering needed.
Penstemon are an American native with colorful tubular bell-shaped flowers. Will attract butterflies and hummingbirds and does well in a drier climate. Drought resistant once established. Waxy green foliage stays lush through summer's heat. Avoid too moist (wet feet). Songbirds feast on the seed in fall and winter.
Best in loose, gravelly soil with good drainage. Pinching back taller varieties when about 12" tall will produce more compact plants. Can be divided every 3-4 years in spring by digging mature rhizomes and replanting. Will self sow. Foliage can be trimmed after blooming to freshen. Clean up in fall or spring. May benefit from dry winter mulch in colder zones.
