Penstemon platyphyllus Uvatung (Uvatung Broadleaf Beardtongue) is an improved form of Penstemon platyphyllus, a rugged perennial species native to UT and NV. The thick, nearly succulent leaves grow to form an attractive rosette. In mid-spring stout flower spikes appear bearing large, grape colored flowers. This is a xeric species that demands poor, fast draining soils with plenty of full sun and heat.

Penstemon platyphyllus Uvatung is a Sego Supreme plant introduction from the Utah State University Botanical Center. Sego Supreme plants are bred to enhance their natural characteristics and improve their adaptability for the home gardener.
