Here’s an open bloom of our Fringed Gentians in the yard.
Fringed Gentian- Gentianopsis crinita
I purchased two of these from Nasami Farm two years ago and, as my yard soil is heavy with clay and they prefer well drained soil, planted them in a half barrel planter. There is also one Closed Gentian in there and they are all getting along famously. I think I should make a raised bed so they can be in the ground for a more natural setting. As you can see, there are more buds waiting their turn.
Those of you who are seeing this as a result of an email notification probably noticed that I typed in the wrong name. I proof read it and just didn’t see it. Old age comes creeping in. 🙂
