Having a hard time finding beautiful blooms for shade? Gentiana 'Blue Cross' will exceed your expectations. Commonly called Bottle Gentian, 'Blue Cross' is a stunning variety with saturated, bell-shaped, violet-blue flowers with stark white accents.
'Blue Cross' is named for its unique foliage, where four glossy leaves meet at each axil to form a cross.
While Gentiana 'Blue Cross' Bottle Gentian thrives in shade, it can also handle sun with sufficient moisture. 'Blue Cross' is more drought tolerant than most Bottle Gentian, and resists excessive moisture in the winter.
