Beardtongues (or Penstemon, the scientific name of the genus) are blooming again in Arizona. With over 50 wild species in Arizona and New Mexico (and more than 270 total), there’s a lot of options for our gardens. We hope you’ll pick up a few of these plants when visiting your local, native plant nursery this spring!
Perhaps, you will enjoy tall, sweet-smelling blooms of Palmer’s?
How about the hummingbird magnet, Scarlet Bugler?
The lovely, purple hues of Rocky Mountain?
Or the hot pink, Northern Arizona endemic, Sunset Crater?
