Shorter with dense upright clusters, the tubular purple flowers have contrasting white throats. Perfect for edging a path to your favorite bench or around a birdbath. A sun lover for hot dry sites. The well-branched habit with wide foliage promotes abundant flowering.
The nectar-rich flowers of Penstemon Polaris™ Purple are indispensable to pollinators like hummingbirds, butterflies and bees. In the wild, Beardtongue is among the first plants to colonize land that has been decimated from fire, erosion and road cuts.
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.

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.
