Standard Cyclopedia of Horticulture

Gentiana bavarica, Linn. Calyx-lobes lanceolate; corolla funnel- or nearly bowl-shaped; lobes obovate, obtuse; ovary sessile: seeds not winged. May-Aug. Cent. Eu. F.S. 7:651. L.B.C. 13:1256. J.H. III. 35:585. Gn. 15:278 (poor).—The pictures cited all show a salver- shaped corolla. "Requires a soil that is peaty, or at the very least porous and cool, well drained, and capable of retaining an abundant supply of moisture, although it may be fully exposed to the sun. In the alpine garden here we grow them in pure sphagnum moss on a wall facing due south, but the plants which we raise for sale are grown in pots in a compost of sphagnum, heath-soil and sand. Finest of Group III." —Correvon. CH
