“Penstemon, a Pollinator’s Slender Pal”


Also known as “slender beardtongue” for its floral shape, this appeals to a variety of pollinators. The tubular flowers come in a variety of pinks, purples, and white, and it hosts the Chalcedon Checkerspot and Edith’s Checkerspot butterflies in the western portion of its range. Grows to about 2 feet and has toothed, slender petals with many flowers in each stalk. Historically used to treat fever, and the roots were chewed to ease toothaches.

We offer hand made custom frames constructed from natural wood of your choice. Click on the photos below to open and preview the frame options.

All orders will be shipped in 3-10 business days via USPS Priority mail, UPS or FedEx, depending on the size of the item and whether framing was desired. For medium to larger works, and if crating is needed to safely ship, it will be UPS or FedEX. USPS can ship larger works but it is a lot more expensive!

If I anticipate framing will take longer for any reason, I will reach out and let you know! You will receive a tracking number via email once the work has shipped.
