Gentiana asclepiadea (Gentianaceae) 263 19

Gentiana asclepiadea (the willow gentian) is a species of flowering plant of the genus Gentiana in the family Gentianaceae, native to central and eastern Europe from primarily mountain woodland though it does occur in a less wooded open pasture in some areas, perhaps persisting after woodland clearance.
This plant produces pairs of leaves, sometimes whorled in threes or fours around particularly vigorous shoots on stems that generally arch elegantly outward from the base of the plant between 60–90 cm in length. Trumpet-shaped, deep blue flowers occur in late summer into autumn.
Gentiana asclepiadea likes moist, rich, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade.
