A bottle gentian from David Lowe

Posted on |

I saw a flowering plant when I was in a boat and no one has identified the plant yet. The location was Clemson SC. at the edge of the water sometime in the summer.


this is most likely Gentiana saponaria – one of the bottle gentians.  It is occasional to fairly common along forest streams in the Oconee – Pickens county areas.
