White Seaside Gentian

21 Jun

Last June I posted about the Seaside Gentian, a beautiful lavender flower with a purple center. This June I’m posting it again in its white flower form! These were found growing on the salty roadside sand in large groups near Ozello, Fl, along with their purple flowering relatives. If you want to try growing these at home, you’ll most likely have some luck with another Seaside Gentian relative known as Lisianthus in garden centers throughout summer.
