Blue Mist Penstemon
Blue Mist Penstemon - Penstemon virens - Perennial
Seeing this in blue waves across a mountain meadow is a thing to behold. It can cover road cuts, play amongst the rocks or grow in boulder crevices. It ranges from a dark blue to blue/lavender on short, compact plants with glossy leaves.
Blooms July and August. Grows from 6-12" tall, the higher you are in elevation, the shorter it grows. Reliable. Charming.
Collected at 9,500'
Moist stratify for 30-60 days or plant in fall.
