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).

Plant Information

Foxglove Beardtongue, or Penstemon digitalis, is an easy-to-grow wildflower that is native to Missouri. It thrives in clay or dry soil (wet or poorly-draining soil can cause root rot) but can grow in full sun to partial shade, making it adaptable to many regions. A true pollinator magnet, the tube-like blooms attract a variety of long-tongued bees as well as butterflies and hummingbirds.

Growing to be about 36” tall, this taller variety is great for the border of a garden, meadow or to naturalize an area. Foxglove Beardtongue will spread each season, is deer resistant and makes for spectacular mid-season bouquets.
