shortleaf rosegentian, Sabatia brevifolia
Here's a rosegentian without the rose. Most species of these are pink with yellow centers. Pink and yellow? If anything, this is a more pleasing combination to my eye. But probably not as eye-catching, particularly for all those pollinators. After all, there are a lot more pink ones. Shortleaf's inch wide blooms show up in AL, FL, GA, and SC. Polk Co FL, 10/21/15.
