Bottle Gentian

SKU: AM019320
per Plant - 3" Pot
No longer available this season.
A native perennial for sunny, moist sites, Bottle Gentian adds gentle blues to the late season garden. Clusters of violet-blue pod-shaped flowers are surrounded by a whorl of lanceolate green leaves. Bumblebees are one of the only insects strong enough to open the blossoms, making this a favorite fall food source for them. Native to the Northeast and Midwest, these long-lived perennials will gently spread over time. (Gentiana andrewsii)
