Penstemon fruticosus habitat

Moore's Mountain, near Bogus Basin in the Boise Mountains. Penstemon fruticosus is in subgenus Dasanthera, and it is usually found on rock outcrops. You can see it in the foreground (lower left) and just in front of the pine "bonsai."

The American Penstemon Society Meeting was based in Boise, Idaho this past weekend. We had fantastic field trips, saw lots of great penstemons and interesting geology. I used to live in the area from 1975 to 1980. Boise has changed quite a lot since then, but it has grown up very well.
