    Penstemon confertus is a lovely wildflower, unique in that it is yellow flowered. This one appears quite pale! Most Penstemon species are of course variations on a blue theme. It’s fairly straightforward to grow in gravelly sloping soil and coming from near Osoyoos is well adapted to summer drought. Mt. Kobau is notorious for me. I collected seed of a few plants there in 2002 and my car overheated climbing toward the summit! It’s also home to thousands of Lewisia rediviva, and the Royal Astronomical Society’s (Vancouver chapter) annual star party/campout … just thought I’d throw that in there.
