Some Smart Planting for Colorado Landscape:

Desert beardtongue

Mounds of deep blue green, toothed foliage are topped with wands of vivid purple-magenta trumpets for much of the growing season. This long-lived perennial thrives in water-thrifty gardens where it attracts hummingbirds in daylight and hawkmoths at dusk. It makes a striking contrast alongside yellow daisies, especially chocolate flower, both thriving on neglect. Nearly evergreen through mild winters: wait and cut back in spring to ensure hardiness.
