Gentiana sino-ornata Blue is a semi-evergreen perennial with narrow, green leaves. Its blue flowers are the main attraction, forming in a funnel-shaped manner from mid-Autumn. White striping also appears on each flowerhead, enhancing the appearance of this variety. Its mix of gorgeous colour makes it a lovely addition to any garden, especially within pots, borders, bedding and colourful plant displays.

Commonly known as Showy Chinese Gentian, this particular species is easy to grow and relatively low maintenance. Its trailing habit can be managed, taking minimal effort to maintain. Placing the plant in full sun or partial shade and planting it in moist, well-drained soil is ideal. If conditions get extremely hot, the plant should then be sheltered. Water regularly until established.
