Front Range beardtongue is a native penstemon that grows naturally in the foothills and ponderosa forests of eastern Colorado and Wyoming.
It is a low-growing plant, forming a cushion of dark green foliage. In May, it grows spikes of beautiful blue flowerswith a lavender throat. This is a great plant to grow if you'd like to incorporate more native plants into your landscape.
This small plant needs to be placed where it will be noticed. It grows well in gravelly soil or rock areas.
Cut back to green growth in spring. Remove stalk of spent flowers, if desired.
