Gentianaceae - Gentian Family
The gentian family has late-blooming plants that have tubular corollas with five petal points and five alternating points. The five stamens are attached to the inside of the corolla tube. The superior ovary enlarges and elongates as it matures within the drying corolla tube. The leaves are shiny and green, crowded, and opposite on the stem.
