SILVERTON® bluemat penstemon
Penstemon linarioides ssp. coloradoensis 'P014S'
Tips from the pros: Not well suited to areas that are frequently irrigated, in poorly drained soils, and in soils highly amended with organic materials. Thrives in disturbed soils - aerate surrounding soil with push aerator or spading fork from time to time. Deadhead for the first two years to avoid seed set - will result in a stronger plant.
