Arlington, Texas (Hardiness Zone: 7)
LOVE this specimen! (Especially the name, as Nebraska is my native home.) Drought tolerant once established; let it go to seed when blooming is finished and in a few years' time you'll have a bountiful area!
The small white flowers bloom in succession, from the bottom of the stalk upwards, for WEEKS. Bees adore this Husker Red penstamon, and you will too!
