Penstemon heterophyllus



Foothill Penstemon bush

Foothill Penstemon flower

Foothill Penstemon is one of our favorite no-care plants. Once established they require little if any water. We recommend watering the first year and then observing through the next spring and summer to see if plants are able to survive your area with no water like they do here. They do die back to the ground after setting seeds. Seed heads should be allowed to develop and drop so spring rains can sprout more of these amazingly beautiful plants.

This plant is occasionally available in plug trays. These trays hold 128 of all the same plant.  They are a great low cost way to fill a lot of space. Each cell is 3/4 of inch by 3/4 of an inch. Check here to see if Foothill Penstemon Plug Trays are available.
