A prized and beautiful late display of rich indigo blue closed flowers that have the appearance of large bloom flower buds. Bottle Gentian flowers from late summer well into fall. Attractive glossy broad foliage is held close to the sprawling unbranched stems, flowers form in one to three clusters at the end of stems. Flower color changes from wine red through purple to “gentian” blue. The closed flowers have a tiny opening at the tip and are pollinated by bumblebees who push their way into the flowers.
