      I bought 18 for planting within my labyrinth around 2011. Only one survived so I keep moving bits of it to try to find where it will be happy. This spot seems promising.

    Beautiful! I love the height and shape of Penstemons. Although I grew them in my old garden at one time, I haven’t been successful with them in my current garden. Even the foothill penstemons like ‘Margarita BOP’ have quickly died out but maybe it’s time to try them again.

      Kris, I’m not familiar with Margarita BOP–will have to check it out. I’ve had luck with Husker’s Red. This Pikes Peak Purple is my favorite but I’ve had to baby it and keep moving pieces around.
