Collection: Wildflower Center Digital Library
Original Format: Digital
Orientation: Landscape
Shot: Close-up of flowers. Photographer's note: "Open flowers. My original identification was Harvestbells. I had never seen the flowers open so wide. After a little more study, I decided there was a possibility it could be Elliott's Gentian (Gentiana catesbaei). I consulted with Steve Bowling and after he looked at Weakley's Flora decided it was a possibility. The flora reports Piedmont collections. Today, Steve and I found a typical G. saponaria location and got a good look. We continued to the Wildcat location to compare. The plants at the Wildcat location unfortunately don't key well to either. For now I will stay with Gentiana saponaria."
