Gulf Coast penstemon  is the perfect addition to any informal garden. It produces lovely purple bell-shaped flowers in the spring. It fits in nicely in perennial beds and borders, and pairs well with Husker Red penstemon and yellow columbine. Under favorable conditions, it will reseed freely.

Gulf Coast penstemon does best in part sun and bright shade, and tolerates poor drainage. It works well in meadow and cottage gardens as well as naturalized areas.
