These are the most amazing, true, sapphire blue flowers you will ever see. The blooms are upward facing, about 2 inches long, emerging from a mound of glossy green foliage.

This plant is native to alpine grasslands, rocky meadows and alpine coniferous forests of the Caucasus Mountains. As such it is easily grown in moist, gritty-gravelly, well-drained soils in full sun to partial shade. Gentian prefer cool summer conditions and although their best flowering typically occurs in full sun they benefit from partial afternoon shade to help prevent the onset of leaf bleaching.  It makes an excellent rock garden plant for use in alpine gardens and border edging. Great in containers too!
