Gentiana 'True Blue' is a 2008 introduction from breeder Darrell Probst who, in his quest for a longer flowering gentian, crossed a Gentiana makinoi hybrid with a Gentiana scabra hybrid to obtain this gem. The upright, 18" tall, well-branched stems of Gentiana 'True Blue' are adorned with glossy green foliage and topped from mid-June into September (NC) with large, 2", pure blue, open flowers. Well-drained soils with average moisture are perfect. 'True Blue' gentian is an absolutely special plant for the perennial rock garden.
