Foxglove Beardtongue is an attractive Penstemon that is grown widely in gardens, particularly wildflower gardens.  It blooms early in the season and keeps its flowers for a long time.  It competes well with other plants (weeds, if you will) and comes up year after year.  I have a couple of acres of prairie out front and some years it is just a field of white flowers in the spring.

Pretty flowers!
