Foxglove Beardtongue

Penstemon digitalis


an emergent species in the northern USA, Penstemon digitalis is an attratctive wildflower native to the south. it has white flowers which superficially resemble foxglove, (in my opinion they bear a stronger resemblance to Catalpa tree flowers) but they are unrelated. it is also identified by its opposite perfoliate leaves


this specimen was found in a dry field in late summer and this plant is beginning to show some fall color. foliage of Penstemon digitalis is normally green.
