Foxglove Beardtongue, or Penstemon digitalis, is an easy-to-grow wildflower that is native to Missouri. It thrives in clay or dry soil (wet or poorly-draining soil can cause root rot) but can grow in full sun to partial shade, making it adaptable to many regions. A true pollinator magnet, the tube-like blooms attract a variety of long-tongued bees as well as butterflies and hummingbirds.
Growing to be about 36” tall, this taller variety is great for the border of a garden, meadow or to naturalize an area. Foxglove Beardtongue will spread each season, is deer resistant and makes for spectacular mid-season bouquets.
