Penstemon hirsutus, also known as Hairy Beardtongue, is a perennial wildflower native to Michigan and the UP. It reaches 2 feet tall and flowers from June to July with a pink and white tubular blossom.
It can use full sun to full shade, medium-wet all the way to dry soil and will grow in clay, loam, rocky soils, or sand. Hairy Beardtongue is a great plant for poor soil, especially shaded areas, but it looks lucious in better soils. Its early bloom time and copious clusters of flowers make it valuable to bees, butterflies, and migrating hummingbirds.



Single plants will come in plastic pots (Approx. 4” x 4 .5”) Plants will vary in size between 2 and 10 inches. Single Species plug flats will be 2" x 5" plugs in 38 cell flats.
