Bottle Gentian (Gentiana andrewsii)


Cherished for their blue flowers, bottle gentian flowers look and stay tightly closed to the human eye, but the bees make their way completely inside the flower—keep your eye out for wiggling flowers. After being pollinated, the edges of the petals turn pink, which tells the bees to move on to another flower. It grows well in moist soil and a mix of sun, and is ideal in a border planting. In the wild, they are found in woodlands with rich soil and dappled sun.
