Plants starting with G

Gentian undulata

Plants will vary in price and container size Some will only be available during dormancy – late Fall or early Spring — and will be updated this winter. Seed or plant exchanges are always welcome!

Due to PayPal’s inability to handle and charge appropriate fees for multiple combinations I decided to re-edit all my listings to a ‘plant cost only.’  At the bottom of each listing page will be three shipping alternatives.

Some background and history. John Gray was a well-known British snowdrop enthusiast and who’s garden contained some extremely fine and unnamed snowdrops. When he died in 1952, some of the finest plants passed to E.B. Anderson (another great hybridizer), who made a special attempt to collect them. Thanks to his efforts one clump was to be named John Gray and remains distinct to this day. T Plant with early blooming primroses, Cyclamen couem or Iris reticulata — purples esp. Hardiness z 5  Bloom: Feb. March Light: Excellent for sun or in part shade which gives me a segue to cyclamen.
