Gentiana acaulis - 2012 (Gentiana acaulis)

I know spring is early but this is ridiculous - this gentian waited until April last year

A very welcome flower but if does turn cold it will wish it had waited until April

Better go check on mine, I think they are well covered with chamomile! Yes, colder weather is expected.

Lovely flower, how is it coping with the frost Andrew?

DD - it's under the glass I put over the alpine bed last month (see the blog "Glassing It Over") which keeps the rain off. The flower is till fine but it has closed up

Thanks Andrew, we should have done the same thing...

The cover-up is mainly to keep water from getting in the crowns of the sempervivums and freezing but I've got just enough glass to cover practically the whole alpine bed
