Petite Bouquet

(Penstemon strictus)

This native of the mountains of Colorado, Utah, and Mexico deserve a place in your garden. If you have a location that you don't water, this is the one to plant. Penstemon is very drought tolerant but does well in average moisture, too. Attracts hummingbirds and is a great choice for well-drained containers and rock gardens. Include this plant in the front of your wildflower areas.
