An easy to grow perennial is Penstemon grandiflora.  With well-drained soil which has low-fertility, this perennial will do well.  It tolerates drought conditions.  It requires full-sun meaning at least six hours, but at best eight hours.  They flower from May through June.  They produce tiny seeds that will spread these plants around in your garden.
