Re: American Gardener/ Gentiana

Hi Gene,

I do collect seeds from G. andrewsii and sprinkle them in pots for next
years swaps. Let me know if you are interested in seeds. The G. asclepiadea
seems to be growing nicely and will bloom for the first time this year. The
Gentians share a space with a group of Arisaema, Lobelia siphilitica and
cardinalis, Ginseng and a Parnassia palustris. Quite an odd mix and
certainly not color coordinated but it is one of my few shaded areas where
plants do extremely well.
