Penstemon 'Cotton Candy' Penstemon 'Cotton Candy'

Sweet hybrid between two of the best Washington natives, Penstemon rupicola and P. barrettiae.  This is growing in our rock garden where it excels in poor, well-drained, sandy soil in full sun with minimal water.  Nice evergreen leaves and big sugar pink flowers in summer.  Ours came from the Columbia-Willamette Chapter of the North American Rock Garden Society.

Penstemon 'Midnight' Penstemon 'Midnight'

A time-tested durable perennial for the garden which boasts deep purple flowers thatt continue into fall if dead-headed.  If you can't be bothered to dead-head, then you will just have to content yourself with 2 months of outrageous color in early summer on a plant which will get to 3' by 3'.

Penstemon cardinalis  var. regalis Penstemon cardinalis var. regalis

A wild collection from 4450' in Eddy County New Mexico. With stems to 3', the tubular red flowers rank one side of the stem looking very refined. An unspoken secret of the very refined is their dense scruff of golden, decidedly pubic hairs just inside the throat. These catch and transfer pollen while keeping the flower's naughty bits hot, steamy and ready.

Penstemon pinifolius 'Sunset Glow' Penstemon pinifolius 'Sunset Glow'

A Plant Select release out of Colorado, this is a vigorous and floriferous selection of the species getting 12"-18" tall and wider. This has myriad tubular, orange flowers that are hummingbird crack which flower for many weeks in summer to early fall. Low water needs, don't kill it with the kindness of rich compost. Another positive is that deer - ours anyway - don't like Penstemon.

Penstemon rupicola Penstemon rupicola - Gifford Pinchot form

Seed-grown from a collection in the Indian Heaven area of Gifford Pinchot National Forest in the southern Cascade Mts of Washington.  Surely one of our favorite Penstemon, this has glaucous, rounded leaves on creeping mats with pink flowers that just lovely.  This requires a rock garden, trough or crevice garden as it needs a lean and gritty, mineral soil with excellent drainage.

Penstemon species - Mexico Penstemon species - Mexico

A collection from the hills above Oaxaca by plantsman Chen Hao. A smaller upright shrubby species with very fine textured thin leaves and spires of small tubular pink flowers custom made for hummingbirds and other nectar feeders with enviably long tongues.  This is evocative of P. kunthii except for the flower color which is paler. Something to key out this summer with chips, guac and several cold Negro Modelo.

Penstemon whippleanus Penstemon whippleanus

Whipple's Penstemon.  Broadly distributed on both sides of the Rockies down the US, this should be more widely available.  Most commonly with clustered down-turned trumpets of a rich burgundy to purple, different population can also be white or lavender.  Very pleasing in all of its forms, this is a good garden plant taking more moisture than a lot of the rock garden Penstemons.
