Penstemon for my file


By Siris

Penstemon for my file (Penstemon)

Thought to be Plum Jerkin, but turns out to be Red, which I like. My file will have to be edited shortly. A rooted cutting from Homebird. Do you have a name for it Hb?Liked the penstemon so much, bought a packet of mixed coloured seed, doing well.

Thanks Gg for the suggestion. I will await Hb's suggestion, not that it really matters what the name is.
Gnarly, Ps have you seen my new Sarracenia, might be an offshoot next year, if I keep it healthy overwinter.

Thank you for the name Hb, not that it matters, it is really vibrant. One of my bought seedlings has flower buds developing.

Just altered my file, HB. Your 'Beech Park' has flowered and flowered this year.
When I said seedlings I meant plants that I grew from seed this year.

The seed has been most successful, don't yet know the range of colour yet, one is definitely going to be a red or deep pink, and another has flower buds developing. Will photo them when they open.
