Penstemon not sure which one.


Penstemon not sure which one.

I have had many penstemons over the years, but this is the only one left. I love the colours.

Very lovely, though.
Good pic. Well done :o)

Yes, bornagain, there are a few with similar colouring to this. I had one(which I now seem to have lost) which was called something 'Grape'

Check out Amy's recent photo of Penstemon "Sour Grapes" ...
looks similar... :o)

I've tried to find the photo Terra, but I'm not very good at using the site yet (bit of a technophobe) but I googled sour grapes and they don't look like this one. I did have sour grapes a few years ago, but in a different part of the garden and like all my others, it eventually vanished. I blame the dreaded celandine which, incidently, I blame for everything even my neglect of the garden over recent years!

Hi Bornagain ~
If you put the word Amy in the google top right corner of this page, and click on search, it will take you to Amy's pages and you can click on Amy's photos. I've asked Amy to look at your pic here. Terra x

Hi, I see what you mean, it would be good to be able to see them side by side and I've learned how to just type a name in to find someone, simples... when you know how, thanks

Hi Paul, thanks, I did compile a list once upon a time of all my plants....in the dim and distant past....ah well. Heavenly blue is another contender, there's probably a few like it. Whichever it is it's long flowering and hardy and I'm glad it survived:-)

Hi Bornagain, I have one just like called Catherine de la Mare. It flowers all summer (-:

Maybe that's what it is Annella, it certainly flowers for months in fact there are a few sad flowers still at the moment:-)

Yes mine is still flowering. It's about 16" tall and really bushes out (-:
