Penstemon digitalis, commonly called foxglove beardtongue, is a clump-forming perennial which typically grows 3-5′ tall and occurs in prairies, fields, wood margins, open woods and along railroad tracks.
Best grown in average, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Tolerant of occasional drought and inundation once established. Can be grown in clay soils but avoid overly wet, poorly drained conditions.
Mass in sunny borders, rain gardens, wild gardens, native plant gardens or naturalized areas. Excellent for fresh cut flower arrangements.
