Masses of flowers this year, but I wish I'd bought a lighter colour.

I think it’s a really lovely deep, rich colour, Josee. Lots of blooms as you say.

But it would look fantastic next to a pink one for contrast! Its beautiful, and isn't it doing well?

Think you could be on to something, Sue. It would really compliment this one.

Yellow shows this colour off well, too. Beautiful plant.

If you like P. Franz Schubert (pinky red) I could try and take cuttings for you? The ones I took last month didn’t ‘take’ but I could try again.

That's very kind of you, Sb. I would like a pink Penstemmon, I don't mind which variety. There is a pink Fuchsia next to this Penstemmon but is not yet in full bloom, it has tiny pink flowers, the two plants are not going to bloom together as the P. is going past its best now.

Ok I’ll try cuttings from P. apple blossom too which is a paler pink, but don’t hold your breath! If you PM me your address that will help me to remember.
