What is Gentiana cruciata

Kreuz-Enzian (Scientific name: Gentiana cruciata) is a perennial herb of the Gentian Genus Gentian genus, native to Europe and Australia.
It grows naturally on subalpine forest edge and dry grassland. The inflorescence is extended from the flower stem tip and axiles, and several dark blue tubular flowers are brought together to bloom. The shape of the leaves attached to the rosette-like roots and stems is a cruciform, so it was a symbol of salvation leading to Jesus Christ in the Middle Ages.
