(48-60" tall) Palmer’s Penstemon forms an evergreen mound of stems
sporting pairs of prickly, gray-green leaves. The magic starts in early summer,
when stems surge upward to become towering flower spikes with bulbous, lipped
blooms in shades of pale pink (similar to snapdragons). Ideal as a dramatic
focal point that draws the eye even at a distance, Palmer's Penstemon also
merits a place along a path or near a patio, where you can enjoy the flowers'
delightful scent and watch the hummingbirds as they hover to sip the sweet
nectar. Palmer's Penstemon is remarkably water-wise, durable, and very
drought-resistant. Plant it in full sun and very well-drained soil, as it would
get in its native habitat in desert canyons and washes. Other names for this
deer-resistant and rabbit-resistant plant include Palmer's Beardtongue, Scented
Penstemon, and Scented Beardtongue.
