Re: American Gardener/ Gentiana


The parnassia gets sun until noon then again after 5 pm. It has bloomed for
the last two years, 3 flowers the first and 5 last year. It looks like it
has at least 4 buds coming out now. I raised this fellow after many tries
from NARGS seeds. I know it would do better with more sun but I am afraid to
move it. I haven't found much info on it so I don't know if they transplant
well. Do you have any knowledge on that or care to venture a guess?

I garden in Bethlehem, PA
