Very nice Penstemon Savona! I love the white eye on it.

Kelly...my thoughts exactly....any of those options would be great. Or plant ground-huggers that would help hold the soil in place. I'm always in favor of digging out grass though so my opinion is definitely biassed.

Laughing that that one Blossom.
Just a couple of days ago I mentioned that we really should be making some of the gardens a little larger to accommodate all the "must haves" generated by the soup, and that the only way we could do this would be by taking out more grass! I got "the look", but I pretended not to notice. I may have to get my daughter and/or son to come over when their Dad is out of the house and we could get it done lickety split, and he probably wouldn't even notice! :lol:

Thats when I do the tree and shrub pruning.... Otherwise he just tells me I'm cutting too much or shouldn't be cutting at all... 8)

Ok, roger that!

We just have to make sure it's before Golf season, or I will be "gone" with him!

Betty I got the esprit penstemon seeds from Park's last year.It was a package of mixed colours and I had pink and lavender ones too. While cleaning up my photo files I accidently deleted some of my garden pictures so dont have any pictures to show. I took this picture of the red one in the green house before planting it out..savona
