You can always find some beautiful Penstemon in Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park in the summer. Although last summer, it was not nearly as abundant with the little water we had.
Penstemon is in the Snapdragon Family and grows to about 18″ tall. It is found on dry, open sites. I frequently see them along the Black Canyon Trail on Lumpy Ridge which is very dry.
Have you ever seen a Penstemon? Aren’t they beautiful?
