Penstemon venustus

Although members of the genus Penstemon are native throughout North America, the Venus variety are localized to the Pacific Northwestern United States (though they are perennials that might be grown in a variety of places; they are well-suited for rock gardens and the like). They flower mid-summer and present with blooms from a bluish to a mild lavender color, with hardy leaves that increase in size toward the ground.
