Gentiana (Gentian)

« Previous  1 2 Next »
Gentians belong to a broad genus with some 300 to 400 species from the Northern Hemisphere and a few species in South America. They are ideal for the rockery garden (alpinum) in a well drained soil and full sun. Most gentians require very little care and are best left alone for years. All have very attractive bright colored flowers in white, blue to purplish or yellow shades. Texas Bluebells or Prairie Gentians (Eustoma spp.) are a small genus with three species only within the Gentianacea. They are annuals from southwestern USA to northern South America. They have ornamental, somewhat fleshy bluish-green leaves and showy rich blue to lilac-blue flower bells.
Sow in autumn to early spring on top of any very well drained soil with only few organic parts. Do not cover seeds, keep post in full sun, always water from beneath. Pot-culture for one year, first flowers in their third year (Gentiana lutea after five years). Sow annual Eustoma species in spring at some 20°C. Do not cover dustlike seeds with soil and provide plenty of light to receive compact plants.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
