A mall but beautiful and scarce marsh plant,
with trompetshaped blue flowers, cover with a green
line on the outside of these flowers.
Marsh gentian grows on wet ground or in marshes,
The Marsh gentian flowers during the whole summer.
It's them pollinated by Bumblebees and butterflies.
The seed looses its power when stored for longer times, and can
best sown in the next spring. Germination only starts
ather a freezing period.
