Pineneedle Beardtongue (Penstemon Pinifolius) 20 seeds (#1553)

This exceptional dryland perennial will flower for most of the summer and may prove the most long-blooming of all penstemons.
Pineleaf penstemon is native to southern Arizona, New Mexico and northern Mexico. Generally it remains a tidy clump-forming plant, but some reports indicate its ability to spread into a sizeable patch over time. Plants are herbaceous but develop a semi-woody base when mature.
It produces clouds of small fire engine red tubular flowers borne on dense stems lined with fine, linear foliage. The blooms cover plants for as long as full two months over midsummer, and like all red-flowered penstemons, are powerful hummingbird lures.
This sun-loving species is better adapted to gardens than others. It will thrive and proliferate in sharply drained average to poor soil and full sun. Though western in origin, easterners should not be dissuaded from growing it as it has proven resilient and beautiful on both sides of the Rockies.
Reliably and tough, pineneedle beardtongue is a great species for sunny mixed borders and rock gardens where soils are porous. It is also ideal for western wildlife gardens.
