Penstemon procerus (small-flowered penstemon)

A penstemon as a ground cover

This is a petite penstemon usually found in moderate to high elevation meadows throughout the west.  Often forms a low mat of leaves with flower stems extending up above the leaves. Relatively small flowers range from blue to purple in color.  This is a new species to try in our local gardens and we don’t know how it will grow here. It will probably require supplemental water.  Photo by Kelsey Kelmel
