Hello everyone! Welcome back to our second flower in our new series, the “hairy beardtongue”. It gets that name from none other than what looks like a hairy tongue at the bottom side of the trumpet shaped flower. Depending where you live these can bloom from mid May to mid September, but for us it’s early June to mid July. They like a dry, sandy soil in open sunny areas, but will tolerate partial shade too. They will grow from 1 to 3 feet (30 to 90 cm) tall. They are members of the snapdragon family. Bees, some varieties of butterflies and hummingbirds love these flowers. They are not widespread in our area, these were found down by our river. Have a wonderful day everyone and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
