Plant of the Month for January, 2015

 (veh-RON-ih-ka  jen-shee-uh-NOY-deez)

General Information:

I have grown this plant for 8 years and I would not want to be without it. The gentian speedwell, is a very delicate looking plant that flowers in late spring, putting on a great floral display for about two weeks—which is too short. Even with such a short flowering season it deserves a place in your garden.
