Penstemon Huskers Red


By Meanie

Penstemon Huskers Red (Penstemon digitalis (Foxglove Beardtongue))

This flower dropped off, so I placed it on a piece of black cloth and "snapped" it. Not perfect, but not too bad either.

I grew this from seed several years ago. They are readily available as small to large plants in the nurseries around here. Now would be a good time to start them off from seed if you have a greenhouse/some sort of winter protection.

I have tried a few packets of seeds over the years to no avail, but i think i have a few seeds left so i will have another go now thanks.
