They do indeed, Franz - I wish they would do so well here.

Roma your angustifolia is very big, she likes your soil.

Gentiana angustifolia 'Pirin' bought 3 years ago
Gentiana acaulis 'Krumrey' bought 2 years ago.  Both are loving my raised beds as can be seen by the new shoots appearing some distance away from the main plants.

I may be partial but these Gentiana are the most beautiful spring flowers!
Only a G. clusii survived with me up till now, so I am in deep admiration towards all who grow them so well :)

From a visual point of view, what exactly ARE the differences between GG. acaulis and clusii. I have mixed seedlings from the late Hans Hoeller and I'm darned if I can see any differences at all within the group. Can someone explain please?

Thank you Franz for your quick reply and for the photos. I shall print them off and keep them with me as I have no gentians in bloom at present but they will be useful when spring arrives. I suspect all I have will turn out to be G. acaulis. (Not that I'm complaining about that!)
