Penstemon 'Blackbeard'

$8.99

Quantity

Common name: Beardtongue

 

Blackbeard was a famous English pirate known for his black facial hair. The name of this hardy perennial is a play on words from the common name for Penstemon, Beardtongue. The dark feature referenced on this plant is its incredible foliage. Dark purple flower stems hold its lilac purple flowers with their white flaring tubes high above the low mound of deep eggplant purple leaves. Attractive dark burgundy seed pods follow the flowering performance for extended seasonal interest. ‘Blackbeard’ stays strictly upright all season long with no lodging.

Like all  Penstemons, this one takes the heat and humidity in stride but is also very cold hardy.  It continues to provide terrific color in the landscape all season long.
