Gentiana acaulis Lapis Lazuli
Product Details
A fabulous introduction to our list here from a plant which arose several years ago on our raised beds and propagated vegetatively since then.
  Rich green evergreen leaves similar to those of the acaulis or angustifolia types but maybe a little larger. These clasp the short stems which make a mat of growth only a couple of centimetres in height. The larger of the shoots produce flowers which are held solitarily just above the foliage. Not as floriferous as the sino types of Gentian but each individual flower is significantly larger in every dimension and last much longer. Very rich deep blue, our deepest blue acaulis type Gentian, and a good longevity make these plants ideal for troughs etc.
