Common Name Mountain Beard Tongue Variety  
Regional Names  
Botanical Name Penstemon smallii
Description This Southeastern native Penstemon prefers rich organic soils in partial sun and blooms profusely in May to June in (zone 7). It is easy to grow and a welcome reseeder. In April May and June it has multiple flower spikes that hold lavender fox glove like flowers. Adult plants will sometimes have as many as 20 to 30 flower spikes. This one gets my vote as the most attractive species in Georgia! Mature size is 2'High x 3'Wide and needs dividing every year or two.
