Description: Penstemons are flowering perennials much loved by the gardening public. Gardeners appreciate their diversity of flower colors that are at peak bloom in June and July, their many shapes and sizes, and their attractiveness to hummingbirds and other native pollinators. You may even have planted some in your own garden. Most people don't realize there are about 280 species of penstemon, all native to North America. Even fewer know that 51 of those grow wild right here in Nevada.
Keywords: penstemon, penstemons, native plant, native plants, water conservation, wildflower, wildflowers, great basin, gardens, garden
