Penstemon digitalis (Foxglove Beardtongue) is an upright, clump-forming perennial native to prairies, wood margins, and open forests through the eastern half of the US. Growing to between two and five feet tall, Penstemon digitalis is perhaps best known for its tall spikes of white to pink colored foxglove-like flowers, which attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.

Penstemon digitalis tolerates a wide variety of soil conditions, so long as it's well draining. Foxglove beardtongue also tolerates dry shade but thrives in full to part sun. Individual Penstemon digitalis plants are relatively short-lived, but can be grown from seed very easily, and are capable of self seeding.
