Gentiana 'Barbara Lyle' Gentiana 'Barbara Lyle'

An Asiatic hybrid Gentian which we brought in from the UK.  Dark blue, upward-facing flowers are................really nice.  Sorry - memory of this in flower last year caused the gray matter to assume the consistency of molten chocolate cake and briefly lost all the pretty words. A particularly floriferous selection as well.

Gentiana 'Bellatrix' Gentiana 'Bellatrix'

One of the very good Asiatic gentian hybrids which we procured in Scotland a few years back and can now offer.  This has good, white megaphone-shaped flowers which are liberally, if subtly, spritzed with pale blue spots.  Makes a dense small mat of green needle leaves which dies back in winter.  Moist, acidic and sunny.

Gentiana 'Blue Silk' Gentiana 'Blue Silk'

Excellent introduction from the breeding work of Keith lever at Aberconwy Nursery in Wales.  A compact grower with dark blue upward facing trumpets lined with white in the interior.  This requires full sun to do its best and requires a rich, acidic soil that stays moist.  Your reward is one heckuva show in late August clear into October.

Gentiana sino-ornata 'Goetterdaemmerung' Gentiana 'Goetterdammerung'

Really good German hybrid with Gentiana veitchorum as a major genetic contributor.  We're obsessed by the Asiatic Gentians ( this is one) and we well remember G. veitchorum blooming in the alpine fields on the Zhongdian Plateau.  Big dark blue trumpets in September.  Rich moist soil in mostly sun.

Gentiana 'Oban' Gentiana 'Oban'

Exceptional white-flowered Asiatic Gentian from the Berrybank Hybrids bred by Ian McNaughton in Scotland.  We never met Ian but were fortunate to meet his plantswoman wife Beryl which is a lasting fond memory.  'Oban' fulfills Ian's breeding goals of compact habit and upward-facing flowers in clusters.  For cool climates.

Gentiana 'Troon' Gentiana 'Troon'

A large-flowered and very dark blue selection bred by Scotsman Ian McNaughton.  The October trumpets are so dark that a distinct wash of purple plays in the outer throat of the corolla as I look at it on this October 8.  This wee bairn of Ian's breeding meets his goals of bigger and more flowers - a bonny Gentian!

Gentiana acaulis Gentiana acaulis

A strong-growing form favored among some of the remaining specialty nurseries in Oregon.  Dense evergreen mats of tight foliage erupt in spring and sporadically thereafter, with improbably large and impossibly saturated deep blue trumpets.  This mountain species is no effete alpine, moist rich soil is its cup of tea.

Gentiana acaulis 'Bielefeld' Gentiana acaulis 'Bielefeld'

Selection out of Germany of this darned fine species.  Evergreen tight mats of small green leaves with impossible azure blue trumpets standing at attention looking very superior and perfect.  Well, it is a German selection after all and this shows a certain adherance to standards which the lesser gentians can only dream about attaining.

Gentiana acaulis 'Holzmannii' Gentiana acaulis 'Holzmannii'

Evergreen mat-former with very large cobalt blue trumpets spring to early summer.  This might ruin your other blue flowers for you as they will look embarassingly insipid in comparison.   A rich moist soil in full to mostly sun is best.  Despite popular opinion, these are pigs and thrive on a good manure mulch!

Gentiana acaulis 'Krebs' Gentiana acaulis 'Krebs'

A selection of this outstanding European alpine species notable for having large flowers and being quite a good bloomer. Not all acaulis flower freely but 'Krebs' brings it with large upward-facing trumpets of impossible blue in mid spring.  Now you don't have to be embarrased you have Krebs.  Rich moist soil in sun.  Hardy to zone 5.

Gentiana acaulis Hybrid 'Maxima' Gentiana acaulis 'Maxima'

One of the largest flowered selections of Gentiana acaulis, this is truly a showstopper with its big, deep blue trumpets in spring and lighter reblooms after.  It may owe its vigor to hybridity but whatever the reason, we are down with it!  Moist, rich soil in sun and stand back and enjoy. Gentiana acaulis 'Maxima Enzian' is likely the same as Enzian is German for Gentian.

Gentiana acaulis 'Rannoch' Gentiana acaulis 'Rannoch'

A few think is a hybrid or perhaps the closely related G. angustifolia but it makes no difference in the garden however as this is riveting with freely produced large trumpets that scream BLUE!!!!  Really quite impossible to assess this taxon objectively when you are totally gobsmacked by the flowers. A selection we brought home from Scotland.

Gentiana acaulis 'Sternschnuppe' Gentiana acaulis 'Sternschnuppe'

A fine selection with seasonally variable light blue trumpet flowers which we received from our friend Urs Baltensperger.  Most folks instantly gravitate towards the impossibly dark blue selections and while these are critical to have, consider how much darker they will look with this growing alongside.  Just sayin'.  Evergreen mats in rich soil.

Gentiana acaulis 'Undulatifolia' Gentiana acaulis 'Undulatifolia'

I want my burial mound covered solid in this - seriously, it's that good.  Wavy edged leaves on a low evergreen clumper with big deep blue trumpets on 2"+ stems.  An established clump of this is simply riveting with dozens of big flowers the blue you dream of.  Rich soil and moist.  Loves food.

Gentiana angustifolia Gentiana angustifolia - Nursery Origin

This Gentiana acaulis very close relative and indeed is regarded as being in the acaulis group, is one of the forms found in the nursery trade here in the PNW which is why refer to it as Nursery Origin.  Unless it is from a known wild population, chances are good there is G. acaulis in its bloodlines.  Not a bad thing to have a little mongrel vigor to push those big blue trumpet flowers above an evergreen spreading mat.

Gentiana cf. veitchiorum MD12-61 Gentiana cf. veitchiorum MD12-61

Rich deep blue trumpets with exterior pale striping on this collection from a 10,000' alpine moist meadow where it mingled with too many Primula, dwarf Rhododendron and a Bistorta that unexpectedly threatened to steal the show. This requires rich, moist acid soil with afternoon shade in hot sun areas.

Gentiana dinarica 'Montenegro' Gentiana dinarica 'Montenegro'

Excellent selection of this species in the acaulis group which has large flowers of a particularly good dark blue on long stems well, long for this species anyway.  Evergreen mats in rich moist soil in full sun with main bloom in spring and some rebloom in late summer.  Endangered species in its native Balkan Dinaric Alps.

Gentiana paradoxa Gentiana paradoxa

A tough perennial from the southern Caucasus which has steadfastly refused to die despite some of our unintentional best efforts. This will, in time, make an impressive small clump of numerous upright stems to 12" or so which are tipped in late July to September with multiple blue flowers with pale whitish throats.  This is happy in limestone conditions and is happy here in neutral to moderately acid. It wants to please.

Gentiana sino-ornata 'Weisser Traub' (White Dream) Gentiana sino-ornata 'Weisser Traub' (White Dream)

We love the Asiatic Gentians and want them all as they are easy, hardy and put on such a show in late summer/early fall.  We were thrilled toget this one from our friend Urs of Edelweiss Nursery who brought this in from a German gentian specialist.  Not your typical blue, this has white flowers with pale yellowish stripes.  Moist and sun.
