Plant Information

There are over 250 Penstemon species, mostly native to our western states and Mexico. Their flowers range from blue to white to red, with several bi-colors. The common name, Bearded Tongue may surprise wildflower gardeners, since many of the the wild Penstemons are called Beard Tongue. But according to Allan Armitage and other perennial experts, Bearded Tongue is the correct common name for the perennials.

Comments about American Meadows Hot Pink Riding Hood Penstemon:

It's still alive, but it hasn't grown at all. It hasn't flowered. The poor performance may be because we are in a drought and hasn't gotten much water.

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
