Penstemon parryi- native to Arizona and Northern Mexico. Drought tolerant but can handle some additional water- a good thing and many of our natives can be easily over watered. Typically flower from spring into early summer but with occasional irrigation (2x/month) they can flower just about all year. Multiple flower spikes 3′ +/-. Plant in sun to part shade and they are a good one for feeding the hummingbirds.
