$12.75/bareroot

Clusters of dark blue tubes with white throats blooming in mid to late summer –  one of the easiest (least picky) gentians to grow. One botanist believes this is the same as Gentiana gracilipes.  I admit, we’ve grown both and I cannot tell the difference. Botanists sometimes differentiae plants on tiny plant parts not readily visible. Such botanists are called “splitters.”  We’ll await modern DNA testing to tell.
