Product Details
Foliage is pale green 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. Foliage is similar to the rest listed here but it is generally more coarse. The flowers are trumpet shaped with a wide open mouth often to 3 cms wide and quite long on this hybrid, colour is rich blue with a little purple in the throat.We would recommend a position in full sun with plenty of moisture and acid soil for these plants to thrive.
