Botanical Name Penstemon australis
Description Penstemons are among the easiest to grow Genus of native wildflowers. The species australis is no exception. In mid to late spring, this species sends up flower spikes up to 2'High and has lavender tubular flowers reminiscent of Foxglove flowers, with yellow stamens. The flowers and leave are covered with soft fuzzy hairs. This species is very drought tolerant and will do very well in rich well-drained soils in full to partial sun. Certainly under-used in American gardens and deserves a spot in your landscape. Fits well in tight spots rarely gets over 2.5"High x 1'Wide.
