Bottle Gentian (Gentiana andrewsii) is named for its tight clusters of two-foot-tall, tubular (bottle-shaped) flowers which remain closed.

  • This plant mainly attracts bumblebees, which are one of the only pollinators strong enough to push aside flower petals to access the hidden nectar.
  • It is most often found in moist areas near bodies of water.
  • A late bloomer, its flowers add a splash of deep-blue color to the autumn landscape.
  • It is an animal-resistant perennial wildflower that will keep coming back for years to come.
