Re: Gentiana andrewsii + speaking of blooming... (Spiranthes cernua)

The flowers are not yet opened, so no scent yet. I planted them in  
the front of the bed so as to easily see them. There is a button bush  
(Cephalanthes occidentalis) to the right, and Louisiana iris behind  
and to the left. Also have a curly rush and some short fine leafed  
sedge nearby.
