Looking for a flashy, yet low-maintenance addition to your garden? Well, look no further than the  Dakota™ Burgundy Beardtongue! This plant sports spires of purplish-pink, tubular flowers that rise above glossy, purplish-black foliage. While its flowers attract pollinators like hummingbirds and butterflies from mid- to late-summer, dark seed heads appear after flowering and add late-season interest. If you’re a bird lover, you’ll also appreciate visits from the hungry birds that these seed heads attract in fall and winter. The Dakota™ Burgundy Beardtongue’s seed pods are also a great filler for cut arrangements! A fast-growing plant, the Dakota™ Burgundy Beardtongue will rise to heights of nearly 12-18 inches, with a spread of 20-24 inches.

This perennial is great for containers, accents and borders. Be mindful, however, as it does not compete well with other plants. While it attracts desired pollinators, it is deer and rabbit resistant. The Dakota™ Burgundy Beardtongue is a low-maintenance addition to the garden. It’s drought resistant, with little need for pruning or fertilizer.

Dakota™ Burgundy Beardtongue Plant Care

The Dakota™ Burgundy Beardtongue can grow in full or partial sun, but will flash its deepest foliage color in full sun. Plant in well-drained soil; it does best in loose, gravelly soil. This beardtongue variety will not fuss over soil pH and tolerates neutral, alkaline and acidic soil. Feed your plant once a year in the fall with an organic fertilizer. Avoid conventional bloom-boosting fertilizers, which can promote too much growth and shorten your plant’s life. Beardtongues are drought tolerant, but appreciate 1 inch of water per week in the summer to support blooming.

Beardtongue doesn’t need pruning, but periodic deadheading promotes rebloom. The foliage can also be trimmed after blooming to freshen the plant up. If desired, you can lightly prune in the fall or spring to tidy its appearance.

Dakota™ Burgundy Beardtongue Plant Spacing

Space these plants at least 20-24 inches apart in mass plantings. Beardtongues do not compete well with other plants, so give them plenty of space. They are well suited for growing in pots too.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
