Blackbeard Penstemon

Loved by bees and butterflies
This penstemon sets a sophisticated tone in the garden. The combination of dark foliage and pale flowers is dramatic, and because it's all in shades of pink and purple, it feels very delicate and pretty. Behind all that beauty is a strong plant. Blackbeard is an improvement on a popular choice, Dark Towers. Penstemon typically lodge, which causes the flowers to flop, but Blackbeard's stems are quite resilient, keeping the flowers nice and tall. Then, after the flowering season, dark burgundy seed pods emerge and extend the interest later into summer. PP30052
