Gentiana 'Blue Silk'



Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Excellent introduction from the breeding work of Keith lever at Aberconwy Nursery in Wales. A compact grower with dark blue upward facing trumpets lined with white in the interior. This requires full sun to do its best and requires a rich, acidic soil that stays moist. Your reward is one heckuva show in late August clear into October on a good established plant.
