Easy to grow perennial that produces a nice clump suitable for most garden borders. Pretty pink tubular flowers bloom in the spring attracting bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Shorter than the related beardtongue (Foxglove Beardtongue). Handles cold and drought conditions quite well once established. If you want to increase growth its best to dead head and divide every few years.
