Penstemons I Have Known

In my last post I documented a few Penstemons I have successfully grown in my home landscape. As I hike the local area I have come across some other Penstemon species native to Central Wyoming and the Bighorn Mountains. I’d like to share a few photos. The Penstemon genus is quite varied, but the tubular shaped corolla, opening with two lobes above and three below, is consistent. I didn’t make an attempt to positively ID the species in the photos. Penstemons are difficult to identify and I did not take the time in the field to key them out.

      Hello fellow Wyomingite- sorry I didn’t see this sooner. I’ve been out of the blogosphere for a few weeks enjoying the blue skies and green hills of Wyoming. Thanks for the repost!
