Thank you Terratoonie - this plant is six or seven years old now. It's often regarded as being a little tender, but after the last winter I'd say that it's as tough as old boots!!

I grew some Electric Blue from seed a couple of years ago.... they didn't survive the winter. Did you obtain yours as a plant or grown from seed ?

It is a lovely Penstemon... :o)

I grew it from seed as well.
This remained evergreen even after all the snow & big freeze. Poor thing doesn't even get any winter protection!
