Gentiana angustifolia?

I purchased these as Gentiana angustifolia. What do you think?

The flower looks like a science fiction creation:

Is there some way to get them to make more flowers? They are in full sun.

I wouldn't know if the ID is correct, but that is one helluva picture!

A "science fiction creation" is the perfect description!  8) 8) 8)

Gene, impressive in terms of vegetative growth (although, how did your mat get rectangular shaped?), may your fine mat be equally impressive in flower power in coming years.  The name "angustifolius" is considered as a synonym of G. acaulis, at least by The Plant List.
