Gentiana Berrybank Star
Product Details
Foliage is typical deep green on compact 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 shaped with a wide open mouth, colour is mid-blue with a conspicuous white streaking in the throat. We would recommend a position in full sun with plenty of moisture and acid soil for these plants to thrive. This is one of Dr Ian McNaughton's new hybrids which have been bred for compactness and multiple flowering.
