penstemon species - Anyone else grow these?

last year

I have always loved penstemons and remain utterly mystified why they have not really gained much traction in the UK. Not the ubiquitous garden hybrids (although I have a few of them) too but the high desert and mountain flowers, often heartbreakingly blue. I may be deluded but I have a number of species in various stages of readiness for sowing. Anyone else a fan. What do I need to know. I can basically offer a sunny spot in very well drained, somewhat arid conditions. Waste of time and effort and I should maybe just stick to tried and true types or should I have faith that they will thrive on an East Anglian allotment.

I have Tom Clothiers excellent germination table at hand.
