Penstemon laxiflorus (Nodding Penstemon)
Nodding penstemon is a great perennial addition to woodland gardens. It prefers part sun to part shade conditions, such as bright woodland edge or partially shaded meadow garden. The flowers are pink to purple, turning white and attract pollinators.
Nodding penstemon is drought tolerant, but looks best with additional watering in the summer. It needs well-draining soils. It adapts to both acidic and alkaline soil.
