Beardtongue, Foxglove

Genus: Penstemon.

Species: Penstemon digitalis.

This native wildflower blooms in my yard in June. It's in the Snapdragon family and is used as a host plant by the Buckeye butterfly (which I'm trying to attract). Foxglove Beardtongue loves moist, open woods and meadows. Bees love the flowers.
