Fully double dusky blue trumpets
Gentiana Eugen's Allerbester
Product Details
Foliage is pale 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. This is a very unique hybrid in the flower department. They are trumpet shaped with a wide open mouth but unlike all of the other gentians listed here, this one is fully double! A second row of petals inside the outer layer gives a fully double flower which lasts for many weeks. We would recommend a position in full sun with plenty of moisture and acid soil for these plants to thrive.
