Penstemon pinifolius is also known as Pine needle penstemon. This New Mexico native is a workhorse. Forming small, low shrublets with pine needle-like, evergreen foliage, this has been successfully used in gardens from New Hampshire to Washington State. Our no-water border, which falls into shade at the height of summer, is where we grow this along with agastaches, fescues and campanulas. There, shades of red, orange and blue mingle in a late summer tapestry.
