Shrubby Penstemon

Shrubby Penstemon
Photographed in Blewett Pass in eastern Washington on a rainy day, this is one of our many native Penstemons and a plant that was very important to the native tribes. It was used to make an eyewash, a wash for rheumatism, and a medication for kidney and stomach troubles. Many Penstemons are used as garden plants, but I do not know if this one is.

Very nice picture of it, too. The water drops add, as always. Seems I recall that there are lots of penstemons, not all in WA, and they are hard to identify.

You are correct, Tim. There are a lot of them and many of them look alike to the casual observer and some are hard to distinguish even on a closer look. Used to be a member of the National Penstemon Society, in fact, but even that didn't help me much with some of them.
