Description

Exquisite kingfisher-blue flowers, more commonly with rounded points on the trumpet, face upwards on completely compact mats of foliage. Vaguely resembling Gentiana acaulis, this is one of the scarcest species in cultivation and quite a challenge to flower to perfection.

Sowing Advice

Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
