Closed Bottle Gentian (Gentiana clausa)

Posted on Sep 10, 2014

This lovely flower goes by the name of Gentiana clausa, otherwise known as the Closed Bottle Gentian. These flowers bloom from late summer to early fall and remain bottled up throughout the entire time the plant is flowering. This often unseen flower can be found hiding along stream banks, in moist woodlands or wet meadows and is quite a beauty to see!
