Canyon Penstemon is native to canyons and washes the southwestern U.S. from 2000 to 6000 feet. Hummingbirds love it’s tall spikes of purple tubular flowers. It blooms in spring time depending on how warm of an area it is planted in. After it blooms, you can cut back the stalks to clean up the plant so the foliage looks tighter. Good drainage is a must for this and almost all other penstemons. Very cold hardy, plant anywhere except the highest elevations in Southern Nevada.
