Do you have the blue or violet plant or seeds? I have just discovéred this plant but I will keep looking further. I am a long time hobby gardener so this gentian interests me very much.

Richo Cech –
hello d.h., we’re focusing on the main types used in herbal medicine. closed gentian, purple gentian, etc. are extraordinary and they may be available at other sites–we concentrate on keeping the yellow gentian and tibetan gentian seed fresh, and actually i believe we also have these available as plants, which will save you years. richo
