Description
 
Alex Duguid was the original owner we believe, of Edrom Nursery in Scotland who grew this particular plant as a strain of Gentiana farreri.  This proved quite excellent combining the compact nature of farreri with possibly the pale sky blue flowers attributed to G. ternifolia.  At least this is the speculation of Jim Jermyn who later owned Edrom Nursery.  The outstanding qualities of this plant were recognized and it was named for the original grower.  Alex did good.  As with all of these Asiatic Gentians, lots of sun and water - they flag if too dry and decline if too shady.    Excellent plant and increases readily.
