(36-48" tall) Calling all pollinators! Rev up your
garden with spires of vibrant magenta-pink wildflowers with Desert Penstemon Seeds.
The populations of many pollinators are dwindling, but planting nectar-rich
flowers like Desert Penstemon is one way you can help them recover. Although
individual flowers appear delicate and dainty, don't let that fool you – this is one tough and adaptable
plant. Native to the high deserts of Southern California, it thrives in full
sun and well-drained, sandy soil. Use this drought-resistant plant in
sun-drenched meadows, rock gardens and alpine plantings. As long as the soil
drains well, the plant will thrive with minimal care. The evergreen foliage,
upright stems and overall mounding shape make it a handsome filler plant, even
when it's not in bloom. As much as you'll love this plant, deer will avoid it,
so don't worry about losing those stunning blooms to browsing. Other names for
this perennial include Rosy Desert Beardtongue, Canyon Penstemon, and Mojave
