New blue

Penstemon heterophyllus “Electric Blue”

The first of the penstemons opened this week. The others I planted last year are heavily budded and should put on a good show over the next couple of months. This year I put in a bunch more, focusing on blues and reds, to see which species will survive in Kansas.
