Dear Mikael, great pictures, I think your Blue gentian from Sechuan is Gentian nialamensis which we collected with Lars,  cheers Ian the Christie kind.

A couple of years ago I visited the Dolomites after being inspired by Cliff's pictures. I was quite taken by the variable colour of the verna type gentians near Arabba. As I loaded the pics from that holiday onto this computer for the first time yesterday (Cliff's sales pitch for Mac was spot on too!) I rediscovered this little beauty - this is the real colour as I remember it.

The usual pure, primary blue of Gentiana verna must be the most sought-after colour in all horticulture. So it's funny that when we have that so generously, in Gentiana, we crave a purple, or white, or yellow.  :)The violet G. verna is lovely Darren.

Lesley, I've always smiled at the quest for a white Tecophilea for the same reason. :)

What is really funny is that the rediscovered wild population of Tecophilea looks rather like our 'var leichtlinii', suggesting that the solid blue 'type' form that we grow might have been itself selected because of the intensity of the blue colour. Now selective breeding is heading back the other way, albeit with some lovely results.

For the record I prefer the pure blue form of G.verna.
