Can anyone help with an id on this plant?

Seen on a property in the NW Province in November.

Hi Rosemary,

Your plant is Raphionacme hirsuta - IIRC the english name is something like False gentian.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
