Pot Size: 1 litre (deep)
Description: Arising from thick almost tuberous roots with short wiry stems only 20cm tall, where we found it growing in tight tussocks, at 2315m altitude, on the slopes of the iconic Fuji-San (Mt. Fuji) in the autumn of 2005. With narrow willowy leaves in this form only 3-5cm long by 5-10mm wide. While the stems bore terminal racemes of plump seed capsules subtended/surrounded by a calyx with long slender lobes, resulting from the long blue bell-flowers carried August to September. Best grown in good light in a freely drained soil with some moisture retention.
