The following pictures were taken in the late 90’s when we’re traveling. We stopped and visited with my friends in the Penstmen Society. The first three were taken southwest California. The American Penstrmon Society Annual meeting in California hosted by Robert and Betty Davenport. The pictures came from a members garden.

Nina Price Garden – she grew this plant from seed and named it Utah hybrid. It probably does not exist today. Klamath Fall, Oregon


Ornstein barbatus this plant was in the garden of Penstmon grower in San Barnardino Mts. Sorry I don’t remember her name. We saw this yellow species occasionally when visited Penstemon areas in California. Also, saw yellow orange of other species.

    These are great. I have not seen so many colors of penstamens. the yellow is very exotic.

    • I think most colors can be found in the genus. Beware of buying a yellow penstemon as many sold as penstemon are not. One early theory I heard was the gene for yellow was a killer. That might have changed by now.
