Fabulous dark leaf form of G patense. Many years of selecting has given us the colours from mahogany to deep dark beetroot. The 3cm blooms do vary from shades of blue to purple but make a stunning contrast against the dark foliage. The plant sizes also vary from 30 to 45cm in height. Enjoys full sun to light shade in well drained soil. Winter dormant.
Sow seeds in good quality compost or seed raising mix at anytime. Lightly cover with fine river sand or compost to their own depth. Place in a propagator or cover with a plastic lid in a warm place. We recommend germinating at 15-20 degrees C keep moist at all times, but do not saturate. Usually germinates in 30 to 90 days. Pot on seedlings to harden off and mature before finally planting out in the garden.
