Gentiana

Gentian

Truly beguiling, our Gentian selections display tubular flowers, colored in some of the most dazzling shades of blue imaginable. Once good drainage and a cool position are provided, these low spreading beauties are relatively undemanding.

Gentiana dahurica full sun  partial shade

A loose, handsome base of shiny, long and narrow, deep green leaves gives way to lax flowering stems, each enhanced with bouquets of white-throated, darkly blue blooms, borne at the leaf axils and crowning the very tips. Once good drainage and a cool position are provided, this low spreading beauty is relatively undemanding.

Blooms July–August.

Size: 12" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

You may wish to include one or more of these easily grown herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs or trees that wield plenty of October flair.
