what is the plant that appears to be in the center of your stream (especially in the 3d pic-from top)?
is it planted in the stream, or on the bank?

thanks,

Absolutely gorgeous! What is the bright pink flower in the 2nd pic? Looks like foxglove.
I asked my wife and she did not remember the name. We know it is not fox glove. My wife thinks she has the receipt with the name of the plant. I will try to find it.

That is watercress like Lisak1 said. It is in the stream directly. I just bought from the garden shop and washed all the dirt off the roots and put it directly into the rocks. It is kind of done blooming now. They grow fast. I already thinned it out of the stream.

Looked up penstemon- found one called Carillo- its on my wish list!
The one(s) I have just appeared in the yard a few years ago (maybe from birds). It’s a very prolific grower/spreader (controlled invasive). And a prolific bloomer! The blooms last a loooong time! Mine bloomed early spring, so there weren’t a lot of pollinators around yet.
