What’s looking good in the garden: Gentian

Gentiana sino-ornata

Gentiana sino-ornata

I love this autumn plant, flowering reliably in my sandy, sunny rockery. It spreads too, but not invasively, and then quietly disappears until next year’s magnificence.

  1. that is such a beautiful blue, you are so lucky to have the conditions that they like, I would love to have them here, but they don’t like my soil and I don’t want to kill any more!

    • Well worth growing given the right conditions. I haven’t had any trouble with it. I think it disappears totally in the winter too so need to worry about frost damage.

  3. what a color, and what details on those individual blooms. Very cool but I don’t even think I’ll try and add this one to my garden. I don’t think it would even make it two weeks before going belly up!
