Trumpet gentian produces showy flowers that bloom in the early summer. Accustomed to alpine climates throughout the world, this plant requires little maintenance.
Trumpet-shaped flowers of an unusual hue (dark navy blue with darker, green-striped throats) sit on very short stems above spreading foliage. Blooming in the spring and often again in fall, it makes a wonderful choice for troughs or gardens.
