Seaside gentian plant on Palm Island

Seaside gentian Eustoma exaltatum Palm Island 1.15.15


During a walk around the northern tip of Palm Island today I came across a seaside gentian, Eustoma exaltatum, in flower which I never recall having seen before.

A remarkably beautiful plant in a harsh salty setting behind the beach dunes.

Has anyone else encountered this species and if so where?
