Yellow Gentian (Frasera caroliniensis) Despite feeling physically and mentally worn down, I was determined to get out today. I was hoping to catch this large local colony in bloom for the first time, and I was rewarded greatly! I&#039;ve only ever seen their leaves, towering stalks, and seed pods. This species is considered Vulnerable (S3) in Georgia. Murray County, GA, US. May 2021. <br />
