Dusty white deposit on penstemon flowers

happycottontail. mine are looking much better after the rain.. it is still a mystery as to what it is.. but it doesnt seem to effect the plants at all in my garden.. is just a bit un sightly.

my penstemons have them also my blackbird ones. bu they had it last year and its seem to be only dark ones.. so unsure why but it doesnt seem to effect the flower or anything.. just looks unsightly. it reminds me of garden centres when they water with tap water and its a residue left by limescale and that. but  not sure..
