Notes:

I suspect this may be a False Dragon (but not sure). Whatever it is, this is the first time I’ve noticed hairlike structures on a flower blossom. It stands about a foot tall and was planted near the road where it gets plenty of sun.

    Another species in the genus, the eastern smooth beardtongue (P. laevigatus). Click on image to enlarge. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Penstemon_laevigatus_IMG_1946.jpg

    Maybe a species of beardtongues (Penstemon) (?). Sorry I can’t tell which species this is. “those little hairs” according to sources, these are called ‘hair’ also. Check out the included below link’s description for one of the species, the long-sepal penstemon (P. Calycosus). Best wishes! http://www.illinoiswildflowers.info/savanna/plants/ls_penstemon.htm
