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.
