Re: Gene's Catalogue & Gentiana

I may do that. We'll see if we get rain this Spring. If so, will try two
and see if they can hack the heat. They're so pretty but Texas makes
short work of so many plants that can't handle the heat. Price I pay for
having my rosemary shrubs which I adore and not having to dig up tender
bulbs I guess.

thanks Gene.  Appreciate your advice sir (as always) and I love your articles!
