(White Plains Beardtongue)
500 seeds $3.00
Penstemon tubaeflorus has pure white flowers on tall stems in early summer. It is native to the Great Plains, so it tolerates a fair amount of moisture. This species is a lovely garden plant that looks good with everything. Nice for cutting.
One day I saw Penstemon tubaeflorus after a hard rain storm, and it wasn't even phased. Hundreds of water droplets hung from the flowering stems, sparkling like diamonds!
Also known as White Plains Beardtongue. Hardy perennial in zones 4-9.
