Gentiana makinoi ‘Marsha®’ PP16562   

Vivid gentian-blue flowers are the most striking feature of this silver medal winner. Growing 20” tall with an upright habit, 'Marsha®' remains more compact than the species. This pest and disease-free plant blooms from mid-July through Sept. It makes a great cut flower or border plant and its compact habit is also well suited for containers. It combines well with plants prefering similar soil conditions, such as Blueberries and Rhododendrons.

About Gentiana: Gentiana is highly valued for its true blue flowers but there are a few species that have creamy white to yellow blooms. Low growing, they work wonderfully when tucked into crevices in stonewalls or nestled among other plants in the garden. The smaller ones are ideal for rock and alpine gardens and troughs.
