I had this plant years ago, but I lost it. The flowers are a gorgeous electric blue color! I'd like to find it again to plant. The one I had I got locally, but I haven't seen it since.

Maybe I'll check the growing requirements better if I can find it. I might not had the perfect conditions where I had it planted.

I have started this penstemon from seed twice and it is not difficult. Pre-chill then I sprinkled on moist seed starting mix in a saved fruit, clear, clamshell container. Set in a tray and bottom water every other day or so. I have also purchased from Bluestone Perennials. I move a lot, hence the need for new.

Oh, I forgot, I got the seeds from Summer Hill Flower Seeds.
