Tiny, spoon-like leaves sprout on prostrate stems that grow into circular, evergreen mats, outfitting this plant's name, WAGGON WHEEL® bluemat penstemon. Centimeter-long tubular flowers glow blue to lavender throughout the foliage from early June to July. Native to Colorado and Wyoming mountains, it prefers well-drained soil, but is adaptable to clay loam conditions. It does not like to be over-watered, making it perfect for water-wise gardens!
