What a beautiful Gentian! The color is so intense! Is it hard to start and grow?

I guess it can't be too hard because I have succeeded with it Hilarious!
I got the plant from somewhere...Wild Ginger Farm...last year. I recall it being reportedly lime tolerant and "one of the easiest to grow". It was a tiny sprig and so far it has made a good clump.

I love that color! I went to Wild Ginger Farm's website as soon as I read that's where you got them, but unfortunately, they have suspended their mail order operations. If anyone hears of another place that has these, please let me know. I garden for a lady who just turned 100 years old, and she loves blue flowers. I'd love to get her this one.

Aha! Found it here: http://www.edelweissperennials.com/PlantGroup.aspx?plant=Gen...
Edit: Yikes, nearly fifty bucks for three 3" plants, including shipping! No can do...
