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 usually up to 2 cms wide, colour is rich deep blue but with a paler tube and occasional greenish spotting down the throat. We would recommend a position in full sun with plenty of moisture and acid soil for these plants to thrive. A very compact plant throughout the year.
