About Gentiana: Gentiana is highly valued for its true blue flowers but there are a few species that have creamy white to yellow blooms. Low growing, they work wonderfully when tucked into crevices in stonewalls or nestled among other plants in the garden. The smaller ones are ideal for rock and alpine gardens and troughs.
