Bev's Husker Red!
I know I post a lot of pictures, but -- it's the whole reason I got this little camera phone! Everyday it seems something beautiful catches my eye and I can't wait to share it!
This is a Husker Red penstemon I got from storygardener at the Hilliard swap spring 2004. I liked it so much I got another one from her the following year. It has pretty spires of white flowers on long dark stems in mid-summer, but I think the foliage is outstanding all by itself. It's evergreen, but does look a little shopworn by the end of winter. This is the 2-year-old plant as it starts to perk up in the spring. Handsome little devil, isn't it?
