Dark Towers Beardtongue

General Information

Dark Towers Beardtongue forms a clump of dark, wine-red foliage. In late spring to early summer, tubular, light pink flowers appear in loose, terminal racemes that rise above the foliage. The foliage emerges deep wine purple and keeps its color through the summer heat. The name beardtongue comes from the small tufts of hair on the sterile stamen. Dark Towers Beardtongue is an excellent plant for open woodland plantings. Use in sunny garden borders and rock gardens. Add the flowering stems to cut flower arrangements.
