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. Features white, two-lipped, tubular flowers borne in panicles atop erect, rigid stems. Flowers bloom mid-spring to early summer and are attractive to hummingbirds, butterflies, and other pollinators. Basal leaves are elliptic and stem leaves are lance-shaped to oblong. 
Direct sow in late fall sowing just below soil surface.  If planted in spring or started indoors, requires cold stratification.
