Sorry, I can't help you but have to say that that plant looks terrific!

I'd guess Penstemon cardwellii but I'm not sure.

Trond - I like it too

Lori - Thank you . Sounds good to me

I should have given the thread a more general title as I have a few more I would like help with and they aren't Penstemons

The first 4 are from the Siskiyous from 3000ft up to 5000ft for the Phlox

1- Allium sp

2- Something parasitic (?)

3- Wouldn't have a clue

4- Phlox sp

5- Woodland plant on the Teanaway River ca 4000ft in WA

6- Possibly Eriogonum douglasii Burnt Mtn , west of Yakima WA

Thanks . Really appreciate your help - Steve

Sorting out the last few pics before your talk down here this Friday Mr Newall  :o

My guess Steve is

3 Triteleia hendersonii.

5 Clintonia uniflora.

Cheers Dave.

My apologies  for being a nuisance but I've found 3 more plants without a name

7- From The Wenatchees at 5500ft

8-near Strawberry Mtn , Grant County OR on rock outcrops above the treeline

9-back in the Siskiyous OR at about 4000ft

Thanks again - Steve

Steve - the first looks like the one we call Spring Beauty - a Claytonia?  The second, because of the leaves, I would guess a type of Draba.  The third one's flowers look like Hesperochiron calfornica.  But the leaves aren't right.  But these are only uneducated guesses.  All of them are, in my opinion, choice.  Fran

Agree with Claytonia lanceolata for the first, Draba sp. for the second.
For the third, compare to Anemone deltoidea.
