Penstemon roezlii
“Roezl’s Penstemon”

Penstemon roezlii Roezls Penstemon Penstemon roezlii Roezls Penstemon

Beautious purple-blue .75” tubular blooms flourish late Spring through mid-Summer on dark red, fuzzy stems and if you’re lucky you may even get a late show of flowers in October. Narrow, 1-3” greyish green leaves are covered in a fine fuzz. Native to OR, NV and Northern California, it’s typically found hanging out with dry scrub and sagebrush, so it’s not high maintenance. Tolerant of most types of situations, it’s a tough plant not minding neglect. Grows to 20” x 12”, with a woody branching base. Named for Benedikt Roezl a rock star, one-handed Czech orchid collector who left his mark on the horticulture world in the mid-1800’s.
