G

GAILLARDIA A fine Native American plant Gaillardia is native from western Canada south to New Mexico. There are actually 20 or so species but the garden forms are all hybrids or selections of G. aristata. It will bloom for months and months producing a seemingly endless supply of large brightly colored daisies. It is best on dry sandy soils and will recover from damage if even a scrap of root is still alive propagating readily from root cuttings if you wish clonal material or easily from seed if you want some variation. We are pleased to offer the following forms.

Gaillardia mix

Gaillardia Michung/mix Nice mix of red to yellow fuzzy daisies, with lots of brilliant bicolors. Like most Gaillardia, tends to be short lived, but makes up for it by flowering pretty much constantly. Zone 5.

Galtonia candicans

Galtonia candicans

Pretty late summer flowering bulb, a bit on the tender side here, with large spikes of fragrant creamy white bell-shaped flowers reaching 2-4 feet. Sometimes called summer hyacinth, the form of the plant reminds me more of supersized spanish bluebells.

Gentiana dahurica

Gentiana dahurica

A big (well, compared to G. acaulis and friends. Only 10 inches or so high) robust, easy gentiana. Long, glossy dark green leaves form the absolute picture of health, and in late summer produces large numbers of smallish flowers that shade of intense blue only gentiana can pull off. If you've failed with gentians before, or are intimidated by their reputation for being fussy, this is the one to start with. Zone 4

Gentiana gracilipes

Gentiana gracilipes

One of the medium sized gentianas, to a little less than a foot, with masses of small, true-blue flowers in the late summer into fall. The taller gentianas get overshadowed by comparison to the tiny, elite, difficult acaulis types, but I think the comparison is unfair. You wouldn't put this in a trough, but in a perennial boarder it is spectacular, the color of the flowers is hard to beat, is provides a wonderful lift to the late summer garden when things can be getting a bit dull, and unlike G. acaulis, it doesn't up and die for no reason, which is always a plus.

Geum rivale

Geum triflorum

Geum triflorum

Geum triflorum An interesting and beautiful plant. In this case, the flowers are small and hardly noticeable, but they're followed up by some of the most incredibly seed heads out there, the plant covering itself with long, silvery-pink poofs. The effect is magical, particularly in mass, and since they're not flowers but rather seeds, the show lasts an incredibly long time. A terrific prairie native, and so as tough as nails provided it has good sun and doesn't drown. A foot or so tall. Zone 4, perhaps more.

Gillenia trifoliata

Gillenia trifoliata

A very underrated plant native to much of the Eastern US, easy and carefree in a shade garden, attractive foliage, beautiful dark red stems and big masses of delicate, star-shaped white flowers over a long period in early summer. One of those plants that everyone needs when they see it in flower in person, but is for some reason rarely available. Anyone know a pink flowered version? That would delightful... zone 4
