firecracker penstemon (Penstemon eatonii): needs no fert. and prune spent blossoms just once yearly. Plant around trees, by pool, or around boulder... with angelita or blackfoot daisy or damiantia = good pairings. Versatile perennial for wildflower gardening (collect/ broadcast seed). In cooler climate flowers appear in summer- otherwise winter/ shoulder season bloomer and hummingbird/ bee attractant
