I love the way these flowers blend in: the pink of the indigofera pseudotinctoria, the blue penstemon and the mauve nepeta,

The blue penstemon is in flower this season a lot earlier than the indigofera it was paired with last summer.
However the silvery foliage of the Zauschneria (Epilobium) canum 'Catalina' is an excellent foil for it and a yellow Onosma,
cheers

They do look lovely together, Fermi, but I wonder why someone would want to breed a Epilobium which wasn't bright orange!
