Calico Beardtongue Penstemon calycosus starter plant (dormant)

$7.00

Calico Beardtongue Penstemon calycosus starter plant. Similar in size and looks as Foxglove beardtongue (2ft tall) but likes a partially sunny to shady spot and has more pinkish tubular flowers in early summer. Host plant for Baltimore checkerspot butterfly.

These have gone dormant for the year, but still have excellent root growth and can be planted anytime the ground isn’t frozen. Just treat as is though it were still growing and water through any prolonged dry spells. These are grown outside here in Michigan. They may still have some foliage or yellowing foliage if ordered in early fall but as fall progresses and through winter, will just be old stems. Planting dormant plants is a great way to get plants established for next season!

All of our plants are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The containers are around 4″x4 1/2″ May be planted in the pot or removed .
