This "Cream Gentain" is one of my favorite wildflowers! The "Fringed Gentain" and "Closed Gentain" are both purpleish and native here...this white form I purchased from a native wildflower nursery. It seems to grow better for me than the other two, although I really like the look of the fringed variety

I was wondering if you wanted to exchange links. You have very nice blog going here.

Why thank you! I like your blog, too. I am rather computer un-savvy, but my co-worker helps me with links, so feel free to link me if you like, and I will have her help me link you tomorrow.

I keep wanting to find a gentian in the wild, but haven't yet!

To find Gentain in the wild (especially fringed), try moist, boggy places or near drainage ditches. Here in the northwoods, we have a lot of cedar swamps, and I have seen Fringed Gentain in sunny spots near these areas.
