Penstemon tubaeflorus - Tube Beardtongue

This listing is for 50 seeds of this rare US wildflower.

This species is also known as the White Wand Beardtongue and comes from the central US and is found as far north as Canada. Growing to 1 metre tall, it produces a tall spike of white tube shaped flowers in late Spring. Early season butterflies will find the irresitable and the plant will add a splash of colour to the perennial border when little else is flowering. It will die back each autumn to a a rhizomatus rootstock allowing it to survive the worst of the winter weather. It is ideal for any naturalised or cottage garden setting as well as more formal borders. It makes an ideal plant for grouping in mixed borders and can be grown in pots and containers.

Hardy in Zones 3 to 9, it is easy to grow from seed and will quickly establish itself. It does require a 60 day stratification period so can either be sown outdoors in the autumn, or sown in pots and then subjected to cold weather (either in a frame or in the fridge) before the warmer spring weather encourages germination. Full instructions for growing all US wildflowers can be found at this link.
