Not so good

I followed the directions on the see packet and not one of them came up. That happened with all of the seeds I purchased.

Fantastic germination rates from botanical interests! Quick to ship as well. Mine were all punk and purple quick to flower! Mid summer they died back i cut them to the ground and this fall they are blooming again!

Penstemon hirsutis?

2 out of 5 stars Sep 30, 2021
My plants had small whitish flowers- looks more like the native plant when I looked it up (penstemon hirsutis). Have never had the natives in my garden either so I guess an extra star for at least germinating.

Owner Response: Hi Cinzia, These Penstemon barbatus should be pink or purple. A customer service agent will be contacting you by email to help.

Penstemon is BEAUTIFUL!

I sowed these in a winter sowing project. I'd never seen penstemon, and I'd never done winter sowing before. The penstemon germinated and grew into perfect starter plants that I scattered around the garden, to see where it would do best. It did well EVERYWHERE! It has been in constant bloom, and mine were predominantly a lovely hot pink, with large flowers. It is STILL in bloom, as I type, 11/26/21! Try it!!!!

Pretty pink flowers

3 out of 5 stars Jul 19, 2022
Most of my flowers just have buds at this point, but one plant has several blossoms -- all of which are a lovely pink color. Seed packet says "Dazzler Blend" but also Penstemon barbatus, so I'm confused what the "blend" part refers to when one particular species is listed.

Owner Response: Hi Kim, thank you for sharing your experience and asking this question! This blend is made up of a different colored Penstemon; of all the same species and variety, just different colors!

Stunning colors

I started these indoors spring 2021 in a seed tray, then transplanted to a small pot and eventually a berm. I have a lot of trouble with rabbits and they thankfully left it alone. It bloomed early this summer 2022 and was a gorgeous mix of colors. More blooms still keep popping up. I really wish I could submit a photo! I planted these seeds again this year and look forward to it blooming next summer.
