Herb

Scrophulariaceae Family

Penstemon Genus
Other Names for this Plant

Wild Pink Snap Dragon, Scented Penstemon


Location

South of Zion National Park.

Physical Description
The leaves are just as distinctive as the pedals. As you can make out they are cupped and almost resemble a canoe which I'm guessing holds water. Each leaf below is turned almost to a perfect 90 degree angle.

Looks right to me. Good job!
If you take out "(Figwort)" from the family, it will link it to it's relatives.

O.K. I updated it to Penstemon Palmeri from Pallidus and the leaves match perfect I do believe. Pretty confident that this is right.

The pedals look exact but the leaves on the stem still make me wonder, I would love to find a perfect match to be dead certain about the precise genus species.
