Blue iris - this was my mother's favorite flower. I remember as a child seeing my mother's love whenever she looked at these beautiful flowers in her garden. Watching her made me smile!

Gentiana Veitchiorum: Much like G. sino-ornata in overall appearance and size, but flowers richer, velvety blue, the tube bearing broad greenish-yellow bands. Western China. Like sino-ornata it flowers in autumn and needs acid soil, but it is less vigorous and not so easy to please. The true plant is seldom commercially available.
