Exquisitely fragrant, Penstemon Palmeri (Palmer’s Penstemon) is a showy evergreen perennial with sub-woody, branched stems, boasting long stalks adorned with a profusion of large, scented, puffed-up blossoms in late spring to early summer. Borne in clusters of 2-4 blossoms, each white flower tinged with pink, features prominent red-violet coloured guidelines on the lower lip and inside their strongly inflated throat. The flowers rise above the foliage of oppositely arranged, fleshy, grey-blue, dentate leaves, up to 10cm long. Scented penstemon has a deep fibrous taproot that makes it a good plant for water-wise landscaping, rock gardens and other ornamental plantings. Makes a great ground cover for controlling erosion. One of the most delightful species of Penstemon with its persistent foliage and abundant, fragrant flowers. Native to western United States
