Penstemon debilis

I took this photo yesterday of Penstemon debilis in my rock garden. This plant seems to be a real slow grower for me but is a reliable bloomer every year. it dies to the ground every winter making you wonder if they will come back in the spring but they always do. The pink tone in the picture is a little exaggerated as the flowers are really more pale than the picture.

Lovely - the silvery leaves are really offset by the pale pinkish flowers!

A lovely little thing. According to Bob Nold's book rare in the wild and possibly endangered.
