Gentian Blue - a rare wildflower by coastal photographer Craig Tooley

An oh-so-lovely blue wildflower was recently photographed by Craig Tooley. Its name is Gentiana affinis var. ovata. Due to its rarity, Craig is keeping the exact location secret. But I can safely say it was photographed on the Sonoma Coast. It is a California native; a perennial herb. I thank Craig for allowing me to show it to you, in all its glory, here!

To see more of Craig's work, here's a link to his web site:

Frank, Peter Baye tells me they grow in the same conditions as Coast Lilies. We have Coast Lilies on our road but I've never seen these beauties!
