Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

The Crosswort Gentian has the accolade of being the easiest Gentian to grow; it is unfussy, free-flowering and excellent for dappled shade borders. Plants are short at 30cm (12") and feature those classic Gentian-blue flowers at the tips of each stem.

Plants of Gentiana cruciata are tough, rabbit-proof and can be used as an edging plant, in containers or in the alpine rockery border. Flowers appear on this easy to grow Gentian from late summer onwards. Height and spread: 30cm (12").

Water gentian plants regularly until they’re fully established. Provide additional water during particularly hot, dry periods. Cut back faded gentian flowers to just above the rosette of foliage to keep plants tidy.
Plant gentians in full sun or part shade, on light, fertile, reliably moist soil in rock gardens, alpine troughs, raised beds and containers. On heavier soils, incorporate plenty of grit to improve drainage, prior to planting.
