    You mentioned these once or twice when I posted some of our prairie gentians.It’s good to see these; they’re remarkably pretty. How do the pollinators get to the ‘good stuff’ with these?

    • The only pollinators that can get inside are bumblebees because of their size and strength. I have a barrel of these outside our backdoor so might get a chance to study them going in and out. I had fringed gentians in there too but they did not come back. Those are biennials so I am hoping they show themselves next year but I think there should be small immature plants this year so probably not.
