Rich purple flowers on short stems
Gentiana Silken Night
Product Details
This really is a really dark hybrid Bred by Dr Keith Lever. Foliage is deep green on shortish 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 rich purple - probably the deepest of them all. We would recommend a position in full sun with plenty of moisture and acid soil for these plants to thrive. Can be a little untidy as a young plant but improves with age.
