Penstemon, Lovely

  • Sold out


Penstemon venustus

Venus herself stops in her tracks when this beauty is in bloom!

Lovely Penstemon is a vigorous, evergreen, Idaho native penstemon, with resplendent, tubular, lavender flowers in late spring. Its tidier, more shrub-like habit makes it an excellent landscape plant. Cut back seed heads to encourage re-bloom. Bees love it!  Open-pollinated wildflower.
