We have long treasured this threatened species of swamp pink gentian in our garden. Although Sabatia dodecandra var. foliosa naturally resides primarily in coastal savannahs, it has made itself quite at home in our garden. The small basal rosette of light green leaves grows insignificantly to 2" tall x 6" wide. Starting in mid-June (NC), the clumps are topped with awesome 2" pink daisies atop 2' tall, upright, branched, flowering stalks. Sabatia dodecandra grows best in a seasonally moist bog or a rather damp spot in the garden...you'll fall in love all over again! This collection is nursery seed grown from plants originating in southeastern Georgia.
