Typical rich green evergreen leaves clasp the short stems which make a mat of growth only 1 cm or so 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 with a variable green spotting to the throat. This hybrid has slightly shorter flowers than the species. A good longevity make these plants ideal for troughs etc.
