Just love this color and form! What a great little plant. The photo is lovely, I get a feeling of a great watercolor.

Thanks Petra. I have been thinking of you a great deal :) When I googled Penstemon view images I was drooling on my laptop. They are such pretty flowers and the colours are so lovely. I did have a Husker Red but it is long gone. This particular blue is one of my favourites and just might need to live in my garden in 2013.

Hugs
Elaine and Otis
