First up we have the blooming California Native Penstemons.
Penstemon strictus is known as the Rocky Mountain Penstemon.
Penstemon heterophyllus “Electric Blue” is the Blue Beardtongue.
Penstemon heterophylla “Margarita BOP” is Blue Bedder and is our most popular Penstemon.
And now for the non-natives:
Penstemon superbus is the Coral Penstemon.
We don’t have “Firebird” in bloom right now, which is our most popular non-native, so instead, here have a non-native Salvia.
That’s a lot of blooming perennials! So many pretty plants for the Bay Area garden that if you don’t live here I wonder why. Go Berkeley!
