Penstemon virens (Front Range Beardtongue)

This plant is found in dry meadows and in open woods. It has a color range, and some variation in growth form. I am still working on this one, and it may turn out to be two.




This gorgeous clump of flowers was atop a rock formation in Stilson's meadow, and the day after I took this photo, the whole clump had been destroyed by wind. I've never seen white ones anywhere else.
