Product Details
Foliage is rich deep green, elongated and very narrow (for a sino-ornata type) on trailing stems radiating from a central point when young. They produce many offsets and root from trailing stems which is a good means of propagation by simply lifting and replanting as they form. The flowers are trumpet on this new hybrid with us are large and a clean vivid electric blue. We would recommend a position in full sun with plenty of moisture and acid soil for these plants to thrive.
