Buy Gentiana verna spring gentian: A carpet of striking, blue flowers

This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun to partial shade
  • Soil: humus rich, reliably moist, but well drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Striking sky blue flowers, up to 3cm across, are produced from late spring to early summer on this mat forming, mainly evergreen perennial. Found growing in sunny alpine meadows and moorland, they are perfect for an alpine bed. Alternatively try potting them up and placing them on a patio where you can enjoy them close up, or use them for softening the edges at the front of a mixed border.

  • Garden care: In areas where the summers are hot and dry, they will need protection from the sun during the hottest part of the day.

This is a lovely healthy plant and is doing well.


I have put the plant in a big pot so that I can move it to the right amount of sun vs. shade and it seems to be thriving.




Highly recommended


Not poked their head above ground yet - looking forward to spring when they do.
