This hybrid gentian from hybridizer Darrell Probst is a real gem. It's easy to grow and long blooming with true royal blue flowers nestled among the glossy, green leaves lining the sturdy stems. The 2Ó long, upward-facing blossoms open just wide enough for butterflies and hummingbirds to feed. Eye-catching on the retail bench and in the landscape.

A rare color seen in the late summer landscape, this durable, drought tolerant gentian produces intense blue-violet flowers at the nodes up its sturdy stems. Its glossy, green, clumping foliage remains attractive all season. Not fussy like some gentians; easy to grow in well-drained soils. Introduced by: Jelitto
