Gentiana siphonantha

Gentiana siphonantha

Common name gentian
Family gentianaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers dark blue-purple (summer)
Size 4-10"
Light sun
Cultural notes well-drained soil, not too dry

Clusters of deep blue flowers over elongated leaves. At least, that's what my research told me. In fact, I got spotted creamy-white flowers. So it may be something different. Any thoughts?

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
