Gentiana Mammoth
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. The flowers are trumpet shaped with a wide open mouth often to 3 cms wide and quite long on this hybrid, colour is rich purplish 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.
