Hairy beardtongue

Penstemon hirsutus

Hairy beardtongue

A versatile native for garden and landscape, the hairy beardtongue is very tough and adaptable to a range of well-drained soils, in full sun and partial shade. It does well in average clay or any medium garden soil, as well. It is low-growing and reaches a mature height of 1 to 2 feet tall. It is a great attractant for pollinators.
