It only has this one flower, Denise. I'll look and see whether there are any more on the way...I might take some cuttings, I think.

No idea, Homebird! ;-)

Thank you....I 'did' look, and there are more flower stems coming.

I'll tell you a little story...I bought this as a tiny cutting at the village fair 5 years ago - it said 'Penstemon - pink' on the label. It cost me all of 10p....so I was a bit surprised when it flowered the following year....pink? Not really! Arlene told me its name at last year's open day. :-))) Good value, wasn't it!

Well I have P Sour grapes this year and I was expecting it to be Pink/Purple Spritz? But mine has not flowered yet.

Oh dear - maybe Arlene was wrong then, although she seemed pretty sure....I'll do a google, I think. I'll be interested in seeing yours, Denise, to compare them.
