Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Blue penstemon is suited for use in restoration and wildlife enhancement plantings. It is not noted for having value as forage for livestock, and forage use is limited by big game. The fibrous root system and wide canopy cover make it a good plant for low-water use landscaping (i.e. roadsides) and other ornamental plantings.

Keywords: blue penstemon, Penstemon cyaneu, plant guide, forb, wildflower, pollinator, seed
