Verdun - mission unsucessful!! His seed heads are not ready so wasn't the right time. Although he has a penstemon like the pictured one above so thinking cutting or seed!!!

i have verbena and looking others up. Unfortubately the local garden centres seem to sttock the everyday stuff and annuals but not much else!!
