About Gentian Garden Club

Gentian Garden Club’s Objectives:

To develop a working knowledge of all phases of gardening;

To preserve and protect the environment;

To encourage civic planting;

To develop the art of flower arranging.


In 1935, twelve women from Scituate, Rhode Island discussed and subsequently organized a garden club.

They found Fringed Gentians growing by a stream near Route 116.

Their excitement over finding such a rare wildflower led to naming the club after the beautiful little Gentians.

    • Hi Nancy,

      We only organize garden tours of our members gardens every 5-6 years. We do, however, have a garden trip scheduled in June to the Hudson River Valley. Check out our News post on our website for more information.
