Flowers at Zion 2: Penstemons

I saw at least three different kinds of penstemon,
but I only could photograph two.
The top two appear to be Penstemon utahensis,
which was on its way out of blooming in the park.
The bottom photo is Penstemon palmeri,
also called balloon flower,
and this was blooming vigorously throughout the park.
The third kind I saw was purple and on the east side
(different terrain)-
I only saw one stand of it and I was driving, and not at a place I could pull over....
