Seaside Gentian

19 Jun

This is one of my favorite Florida wildflowers – the Seaside Gentian (Eustoma exaltatum)

It is just plain pretty! It is a wild relative of the Lisianthus you’ll find at your local garden center this summer. But to see them growing wild along a dry salty path is like finding a shining gem in the desert.
