Penstemon 'Blackbeard'

Beardtongue

Aaaarrrrgggghhhh! Named after the infamous English pirate Blackbeard, Penstemon 'Blackbeard' has the darkest of eggplant foliage with bright lilac-purple flowers rising high above and standing tall. With a long season of interest and a magnet for hummingbirds and bees, this Walter's Gardens introduction is sure to cause a delightful cry of 'Shiver me timbers!' 

Penstemon 'Blackbeard'

Perovskia atriplicifolia 'Blue Jean Baby'

Russian Sage

Need a shorter, manageable Russian Sage that is still vigorous in the landscape and production? Try ‘Blue Jean Baby’! Lavender blue flowers held in smoky purple calyxes bloom for a long period starting in midsummer, with the color from the calyxes extending appeal into fall. This variety is one of the earliest Perovskia to bloom. This bushy selection joins the lineup of Perovskia from the Walters Gardens, Inc. hybridizing and, like the others this program has introduced, resists lodging. -Walter's Gardens
