Penstemon grandiflorus

This beautiful penstemon is native to the Great Plains region of North America, but we have a few plants in cultivation on Waterman Farm as part of the Ornamental Plant Germplasm Center's trial garden. It's a spectacular plant - large flowers, beautiful foliage that is a bluish-green because of the waxy coating on the leaves, and three to four feet tall.
