Green Gentian, a Curious Geometric Flower

A remarkable plant can be seen blooming in the open pine forest and meadows of the high country on the way to the Valles Caldera and in Canada Bonita.

Its popular name is green gentian but it is also called deer’s ears, monument plant, or elk weed. Its scientific name is Frasera speciosa.

Green gentian grows as a set of leaves on a single stem that is low to the ground. The soft, fuzzy leaves resemble the ear of a deer, as the popular name suggests.
