Product Details
Foliage is deep green on vigorous 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 often to over 3 cms wide, colour is intense blue but with white streaking down the throat. This hybrid we feel is the most floriferous of the hybrids we offer here. We would recommend a position in full sun with plenty of moisture and acid soil for these plants to thrive.
