Using ecology to restore land and water
Foxglove beardtongue is a clump-forming perennial with attractive clusters of white tubular flowers. The common name of “beardtongue” is from the sterile stamen having tufts of hairs at one end. The flowers are visited by hummingbirds, sphinx moths, butterflies, and bees. The plant has a high drought tolerance and long blooming period. The green foliage turns to burgundy in late summer, adding interest throughout fall and winter. Foxglove beardtongue is found in open woods, prairies, and wood margins.
