Many of New Zealand’s 30 species of gentian (Gentianella species) are found in tussock grasslands and alpine herbfields. Pink- and blue-flowered gentians occur on subantarctic islands, but species on the mainland have white flowers, although some have pink-purple veins on their petals, and some populations of mainland gentian have purple-flushed flowers.
