Beardtongue was put in one spot by the landscaper in 1999, but it spreads around
quite a bit via seeds.
It blooms from the start of May through the first week of June.

Beardtongue blooming across the front yard:
Got 3 Red Penstemon (Beardtonguel Penstemon barbatus ‘Coccineus’) from SpringHillNursery.com on Oct.20, 2009
and planted in different areas, but unlike the semi-invasive white, the reds did little or nothing and as of 2014, they are gone.
