Alpine Bartsia

At first glance, when I was scrolling through my Swiss photos, I thought this plant was more of the amazing purple Pyramidal Bugle I'd photographed a few metres away. But on closer inspection it turned out to be Alpine Bartsia Bartsia alpina, an equally amazingly purple plant of high rocky limestone grasslands.

Makes me think of gentian. But I'm imtrigued by the blue and the yellow flowers.

The brighter blue in the background of the second photo is a gentian.
