A much underused and unknown native of the Alps, growing along with trumpet gentians in open meadows. The pea-like flowers are composed of bright yellow lips and magenta wings. Grows as a low, slow spreading shrub with leathery, evergreen foliage, which is much like boxwood except narrower and pointy. Likes the same conditions as trumpet gentians; full sun to light shade in well drained soil. Drought tolerant once established but does like summer moisture.
