The Green Gentian, also known as a Monument Plant, grows to about 5 feet tall on a stiff stem without branches. We have seen many of them in Rocky Mountain National Park recently and in many different locations.
The pretty, 4-petaled flowers are a greenish white with brown spots. You can see the flowers close up and then the plant as a whole in these two photographs. Aren’t the flowers beautiful?
Have you ever seen one before?
