Penstemon confertus is native to mid-elevation sites throughout the Northwest often at the edge of forests or in meadows. Although it is commonly called the yellow penstemon, a color unusual in penstemon, its flowers are not bright yellow but soft yellow, sometimes even cream. The flowers are arranged in dense whorls on upright stems above more-or-less evergreen mats of bright green, lance-shaped foliage. This is a good pollinator plant for Northwest gardeners.
