Description
Penstemon digitalis Blackbeard has lilac purple flowers that sit on dark purple stems over top eggplant colored leaves; gives color in the garden all season; 28"-34"; winter hardiness zone 3-8; bareroot.

Critter resistant pollinator attractor!  Blooms early to mid-summer; an easy to grow salt tolerant, drought tolerant perennial that is great as a cut flower, too!  Grow in a full sun, well drained area.

Our pollinators are so important to the sustainability of our gardens and food crops for insect and birds and if each of us participates in healthy gardening practices and chooses some of the pollinator attracting plants, we can collectively make a HUGE difference.
