There is almost no color so treasured as blue in the late summer and early autumn garden. And so, here is a plant to treasure. These seedlings of the Gentiana makinoi `Royal Blue Strain' have vivid flowers up to 2 inches long which form at the terminal and upper leaf axils of the stems. The flowers are tubular and the upper lips do not recurve. Lance-shaped leaves rise up the sturdy stems which bear these flowers proudly.

Late summer.  20 in. x 6 in.
