(Large Beardtongue, Shell-leaf Penstemon, Wild Snapdragon)

A short-lived perennial wildflower, the large beardtongue provides ample beauty in both its foliage and flowers.

(Rocky Mountain Penstemon)

Considered the showiest of the brilliant blue penstemons, this species rivals the most elegant border perennials. Its beauty disguises a truly rugged constitution required for any native of the Rocky Mountains. Its range extends over parts of Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico in the pinyon-juniper, scrub oak and aspen plant communities. Tolerance of high altitude makes this a perfect choice for resort towns in the Sierra Nevada and other ranges of the west.

Densely held blue...

(Upright Blue Beardtongue)

Known as wandbloom for the way the crowded flowers are held on the stems, this is a showy, blue purple perennial for mountain gardens. It is native to a relatively small range of northern New Mexico and northern Arizona, proving a tolerance for higher altitude, arid conditions and less than ideal soils. A subspecies of this plant is also found in the Rocky Mountains on both sides of the Continental Divide.

While it is not as majestic as some penstemons, the rich color of the flowers held...

A wide-spreading, open-branched deciduous tree, it hails from northeastern China, Korea, Japan and extreme eastern Russia. A fat, short trunk branches out into muscular, irregular boughs. The soft, corky bark mimics the look of a coarse, tan snake skin, begging to be touched.

Amur corktree is dioecious, displaying tiny, yellow-green, male or female flowers on separate...
