Penstemon (also called beardtongue) are great, easy care native perennials that attract hummingbirds. There are many varieties in reds, blues and pinks. I'm not sure which one you have. Many are hardy, some are not, many take intense summer heat, others do not. Here's a link to a report that gives the basics of planting and care. Even though it's a different region than where you live, the info is appropriate. Good luck! http://www.garden.org/regional...
