Penstemon venustus Penstemon venustus

Latin for “charming” and “attractive”, P. venustus will win your heart with her bounty of tubular 20” long, amethyst purple blooms from early to mid-Summer. Native to dry, rocky, open areas, gravelly slopes, and canyons from the southwest tip of Washington to the northwest corner of Oregon and the center of the Idaho panhandle, it’s a sweet option for mountainside gardens and erosion control. Total hummingbird magnet! Great drainage is a must and rich soil is best. Cut back to 2” in Winter. To 4’ high and 18” wide.
