Gentiana x macaulayi 'Kingfisher'



Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Asiatic Gentian with big deep blue trumpets on this mat forming beauty. Rich moist acidic soil is best for this late sumer-fall bloomer. Outrageous in bloom and this will quickly, for an Asiatic Gentian, make a nice dense patch as it roots along the stems. Not a thug, nor invasive or a problem - this a good thing. Moist acidic soil in full sun is just the ticket.
