    Of all the alpine plants that really must be seen in their natural habitat, the gentian is the one that most needs its mountain setting to reveal its peerless beauty.  There’s something about the intensity of the blue flowers studding the high alpine meadow against a backdrop of the nearly-as-blue sky that sets my heart racing – it’s my ultimate Heidi moment.
