Penstemon 'Minibird Lilac'


Penstemon 'Minibird Lilac' (Penstemon)

This plant really lives up to its name - it's a miniature Penstemon. The flower stems don't stand up lile the usual tall ones do.

I adore this one to Barbara ,I could easly get hooked on these delights.

How long do take to root in water ?

Very nice!
How small is it?

that's a very pretty little one :-))

No, Cinders! That was very restrained, wasn't it!

It's only about 4" tall... and very pretty, but you need to get up close to it.

Kath, I can't remember, but only a couple of weeks before you see the roots appearing - obviously longer before the roots are big enough to pot the cuttings up.

I haven't seen that one before Barbara ,it's very pretty , a nice height for growing in gravel in my sundial circle , one to look out for !

I hadn't ever seen one like this before either, so I was pleased. It fits nicely into the bed across the path from the one I re-vamped. Blog to follow! :-))
