Description
 
A good dark blue Asiatic Gentian which true to name, brings a turbulent close to the summer with a vivid display of rich blue flowers held above the low mat of needle-like foliage.  Variously seen offered as a selection of sino-ornata or veitchiorum, this seems more likely to be the love child between the two species as the dense and vigorous habit is more sino-ornata and the deep mid blue color perhaps a nod to the luscious intensity of dark blue in veitchiorum.  A fine addition to the gentian collection and best in rich moist soil in half to full sun.  Hardy to zone 4 anyway.
