alpine garden club PLANT OF THE MONTH
This little beuaty flowered on our garden on May 8, 2013. It is endemic to the Uinta Mountains in eastern Utah. The lanceolate basal leaves are unusual in a Penstemon and the diminuitive stature. According to Robert Nold in his book "Penstemons" it is sometimes confused with Penstemon utahensis which is a completely different plant.
I planted Penstemon uintahensis in the Spring of 2012 . The plant came from Grahame Ware and his Owl and Stump Rare Plant nursery on Vancouver Island.
