Flowery Friday: Gentian.

I can’t get enough of that breathtaking blue! A lovely specimen of Gentian acaulis found at the Calgary Horticultural Society’s demonstration rock garden.

Do you grow gentian?


    • I had to look up what bottle gentian look like – how lovely! I love the closed petals…and I read that bumblebees are the primary pollinators as they have the strength to open up the flowers and reach the pollen. Apparently we do have them here in Canada, although it sounds like they are mostly found in the eastern part of the country. It sounds like they are quite the challenge to grow.

  1. It’s beautiful for sure, but I have never heard of that flower. I am not sure exactly how to Pronounce it even.

I'm delighted to hear from you - thanks so much for your comments!
