'What is a Penstemon?' - by Lodewick
What is a Penstemon? Well , it is not a kind of bird or a mushroom, as some of our friends have guessed. Penstemon is a genus of plants in the family Scrophulariaceae, with great variation in form and beauty, and with unusual flowers.

'The Cristati Penstemons' - by Kelaidis, Gwen
Growing many closely related species of penstemons is an interesting gardening pastime. A few years ago I set out to get to know the Cristati penstemons, sometimes also referred to as the Aurator section. There are many short species with fairly large flowers. Most have golden-hairy staminodes. These are mostly from the arid West. It seems like a perfect group for a Denver rock gardener to explore ....- to download, Link Here
