Plant of the Week: Penstemon heterophyllus ‘Margarita BOP’ is a garden tolerant selection from Bert Wilson of Las Pilitas Nursery, with bright blue flowers bearing a rose-purple tinge. Growing up to two feet tall and three feet wide, this exceptional new cultivar has performed well in a wide range of garden conditions, including heavy clay and sandy soils. In our experience it is longer-lived than other cultivars of this species and should be planted in full sun with occasional waterings once established. Hardy to 15F. Penstemon heterophyllus ‘Margarita BOP’ is available this week in one gallon containers.
