Grevillea flower

Below is our expansive gallery and directory featuring flowers that start with “G”.

It’s easy to understand why the Gentian flower is much-loved. If there’s a reason to it, its genuinely deep blue color certainly works to captivate the beholder. This showy flower with five petals in the shape of a trumpet also appears like it’s sitting on top of its basal foliage. Reaching only about 4” tall, it spreads out as ground-cover and forms a mat about 6” wide, adding beauty to the already picturesque landscapes of the European alpine grasslands, meadows and forests where this flower is commonly spotted.

Much-loved, another fascinating place where the Gentian flower can be found is on the Austrian one euro cent coin. And as if the royal blue flowers also need a piece of royalty to its badge, its genus name Gentiana acaulis was given as a tribute to King Gentius of Illyria, c. 500 B.C. Many believe that the antiquity king was the one who discovered the medicinal benefits of the yellow gentian. This is why even today we also refer to the word gentian for a tonic liquor made from the flower of the same name.
