Masses of amazingly bright blue flowers cover this gentian in June. Some stems are upright, others are prostrate with the last few inches of stem upturned to clear the ground. Plant in part shade to part sun. Avoid full sun. This gentian is one of the easiest to grow and tolerates a wide range of soils and exposures. Good for rock gardens and near pathways where it can be appreciated. From the Caucasus, Turkey, Iraq and Iran.
