Penstemon heterophyllus 'Margarita BOP'
Common Name: Foothill Penstemon Family: Scrophulariaceae (The Figwort Family)
| Zoom In Photo:
This chance seedling (possibly involving a cross with P. laetus) germinated and grew for years at the Bottom of a Porch (hence the whimsical BOP in the name). Most importantly this gorgeous cultivar has bright sky blue flowers that fade to warm purple with age. Flowers are produced in masses over a long period in summer. Best in full sun and well-drained soils. Do keep in mind that the shade of the flower can vary with soil, water, light and the year.
