Description

The "Willow Gentian" is one of the few plants that really does improve with time. Hundreds of upturned deep blue trumpets on arching stems through summer and into late autumn. The easiest, longest lived, latest flowering and most rewarding of the taller gentians.

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.
