Penstemon is one of my favorite perennials in the garden. It seems to love my hillside that is on the dry side and spreads easily, but is not invasive. The color and blooms all summer can't be beat. It does add a mid-sized vertical element to the garden bed. It is native to our area, but this particular one is a hybrid and requires more regular watering than the drought tolerant native.
