    native thrives in desert areas, so it is very resistant to heat and

  • John Mitchell, an 18th century
    American botanist, recorded the first botanical description of this plant
    genus; Carl Linnaeus included it in his landmark publication Species
    Plantarum in 1753. According to legend, Native Americans once used this
    plant as a versatile medicinal remedy. Its unusual common name comes from
    a fuzzy “tongue” in each open bloom, which gives a slight
    resemblance to a mouth and a tongue. The genus name “Penstemon”
    comes from Greek words for “five threads,” referring to the
    stamens of each blossom.

Sowing: Direct sow in late fall, pressing into
the surface of the soil since this seed needs light to germinate. For spring
planting, mix the Eaton’s Penstemon seeds with moist sand and store in the
refrigerator for 30-60 days before planting. Keep the soil lightly moist until
germination. This seed can also be started indoors 6-8 weeks before planting in
the spring.

Growing: Water seedlings until they become
established. This plant develops rather slowly, and usually begins blooming in
its second year. Mature plants tolerate drought well, though they also
appreciate occasional watering in especially dry weather; excessive heat and
dryness can cause wilting. This plant grows well in rocky soil, and has
excellent resistance to disease and pests. After blooming cut the plant back to
several inches above the soil, unless seed is wanted. Do not overwater, since
this plant is particularly susceptible to root rot if the soil becomes too
moist. If seeds are not required, cut the plant back after blooming has
finished. This plant often self-sows, and is highly attractive to bees,
hummingbirds, and butterflies.

Harvesting: For cut flowers, choose stems with
flowers that have just opened. Strip the foliage that will fall below the water
level, and place in water immediately.
