Beard-Tongue ‘Prairie Dusk’
Beard-tongues are native North American wildflowers, available in a surprising range of colours, heights and textures. This hybrid selection was developed in Nebraska, chosen for its hardiness and ease of growth. Plants form a low clump of green foliage, with upright spikes appearing in early summer. Flowers are vivid purple trumpets, attractive in the border and useful for cutting. An excellent low-maintenance perennial, especially for hot, dry sites. Attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds.
