Penstemon buds

When do penstemon flowers buds appear?

I may need to move it to a sunnier spot for it to flower, but don't want to do it unnecessarily .

Thanks chaps

     Just before they flower image

    Sorry - 

    I've got a few varieties and they start flowering here in essex about the end of may/june (sour grapes is the first), so I'd think you'll be ok to move it now and give it a good drink to help recover

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Thanks Pete. I was just wondering when's the earliest that I would know for sure whether or not it was going to produce flower buds.

    B3, you could use some of that lush growth to take some cuttings.

    Agree Hosta - that's what I've done.

    Sorry B3 got the wrong end of..

    You should see buds by mid-june at the latest I would think and in sometime in may earliest
