Well drained soil
Bee friendly
Pot Size


Height x Spread: 150cm x 50cm

This tall form of 'Gentian Sage' produces large, bright blue, two lipped flowers, on slightly fuzzy stems, above brown marked triangular green leaves. Simply stunning, this plant's intense gentian blue flowers will stop you in your tracks.

Long flowering, it is great for planting towards the back of a border, where it will sing out all summer. Half-hardy, it will enjoy the protection of a sunny wall in a courtyard or urban garden, but is sufficiently tolerant of salt air to be a good choice for a coastal spot. Very attractive to bees. Do not cut back until frosts have finished. For the best results grow in a free draining soil, avoiding winter wet, in full sun.

Available for Mail Order from April - August
