Gentiana 'Goetterdammerung'



Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
A good dark blue Asiatic Gentian which true to name, brings a turbulent close to the summer with a vivid display of rich blue flowers held above the low mat of needle-like foliage. Variously seen offered as a selection of sino-ornata or veitchiorum, this seems more likely to be the love child between the two species as the dense and vigorous habit is more sino-ornata and the deep mid blue color perhaps a nod to the luscious intensity of dark blue in veitchiorum. A fine addition to the gentian collection and best in rich moist soil in half to full sun. Hardy to zone 4 anyway.
