Blue Gentian

After the ‘green‘ one, here is another impression from my recent hiking tours in the Alps: this time a combination of brown, green and blue.

The one below is the Gentiana Verna (or Spring Gentian). It is rather small and widespread, found on sunny alpine meadows.

Larger and not so widespread is the Clusius-Enzian. It grows up to about 10 cm and shows off with a very intensive blue color:
