Native to the eastern Canada and the United States, this attractive and-easy-to-grow perennial species has hairy stems (hence its species name, hirsutus) bearing leaves which are opposite and stalkless. Numerous purple-blue and white trumpet flowers open over an extended period in early and mid summer. This is a very versatile penstemon for full sun to full shade and medium wet to dry soils.

Sowing Advice

Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
