Product Details
Foliage is pale 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. This hybrid is a sport from G. Inverleith (Hort). The flowers are trumpet shaped with a wide open mouth often to nearly 4 cms wide, colour is clean pale blue but with white streaking down the throat. We would recommend a position in full sun with plenty of moisture and acid soil for these plants to thrive.
