Penstemon ‘Alice Hindley’

Penstemon 'Alice Hindley'

Penstemons’ throaty flowers have a lustre that comes from their blend of highlights and lowlights.  P. ‘Alice Hindley’ is a popular purple variety that tends to grow taller and bushier than most. I’ve seen the colour much softer than it appears here. The flowers keep their pouting beauty as they fade.

Shared for Cee’s Flower of the Day. 

While I am fortunate enough to be able to share a flower today from the peace of my home, my thoughts are with those in the path of Hurricane Ida, including my friends in Mississippi, and everyone else in harm’s way in these troubling times.

  1. How lovely. It’s reminded me I haven’t seen my penstemons this year. I wonder why not? Horrible times yet again in the States. These awful weather events seem to be more frequent now.

    1. We’re lucky to have better early warning systems than in other eras, but seeing the path of a hurricane is a very strange feeling, even from thousands of miles away.
