The Gentian Walk is again home to several species of these diminutive alpine plants, among them Gentiana sino-ornata, G. septemfida var. lagodechiana and G. crucciata. Our efforts to obtain her particular favourites, Gentiana farreri and G. x macaulayi var. Wellsii, a hybrid of G. sino-ornata and G. farreri, have to date proved fruitless. But the search goes on.
