Perhaps you will have the privilege of witnessing a bumblebee squeeze into this delicate wildflower! This Gentian never opens, but has four petals, fused together with accordion-like folds to allow room for expansion, preventing the flower from tearing upon pollination by bumblebees. Wonderful in a formal setting, en masse, and in borders. A fascinating fall bloomer!
