Rocky Mountain Blue Fringed Gentian ( Gentiana elegans )
Family: Gentian (Gentianaceae)
Habitat: meadows and moist geyser basins
Height: 6"- 8"
Flower size: 2 inches long
Flower color: blue, purple
Flowering time: July to September
Origin: native
It grows in the moist places of the geyser basins and in the mountain meadows. Its deep rich blue color is found in no other flower, and there are few flowers which, on close inspection, display so fine a texture. It differs in size from other gentians, being slightly smaller and having flowers often tinged with lighter streaks or patches like the one in my shot. Look for these beauties around the Upper Geyser Basin, where there have been found specimens of a pure white. I wasn’t lucky enough to find the white one but this is exactly where this one grew.
Upper Geyser Basin, Yellowstone, Wyoming, USA
