Seems to grow fine, not too fast though. It is not bothered by any bugs.Survived the Michigan winter with ease. I want to grow a large grouping in one garden, the blue really catches your eye.Bloomed the first year after planting

    Comments about Gentian True Blue:

    It is not often the photo matches the flower. Most photos are saturated with color and causes disappointment after the flowers appear. This flower by the late summer matched the photo. It is supposed to get taller. Looks great with Tiki Torch Coneflower. I am getting more this year.
