Description

An extremely hardy gentian, this Gentian produces masses of cobalt-blue flowers in summer. Plants are compact, and form a mat-like ground cover reaching 5-6" tall (10-15cm). These Gentian like to be planted in a sunny location, and are ideal planted at the front of the garden, in a rock garden, or trailing over walls. We've been growing this Gentian for many years now, started from seed, and we find it to be very easy to grow, and does well even in our sandy-soil location (though probably not it's favorite soil type). If you like cobalt-blue flowers, this is a beautiful Gentian to try!

Type: Hardy perennial

Hardiness zones: 2-9

Seeds per pack: 20

Height: 5-6"

Location: Sun or part sun

Germination: Start these seeds right away for best germination rates. Start indoors. Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Do not bury the seeds as they require light for germination. Sow the seeds on the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Leave them at room temperature for 5 weeks. This helps break the phytohormones which inhibit germination. They will not grow yet. Then a cooling period is required. Cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 80 days. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to a cool room (15C, 59F) for them to germinate. Germination is generally 30-90 days after the warming period, though some can take longer.
