Stemless gentian, also known as trumpet gentian, is native to the European Alps. Its dark blue flowers appear very early in spring.

Gentian seeds require some patience in getting them to germinate. There are two recommended methods for starting the seed. First method, in the spring, mix the herb seeds in a moist growing medium, place in a freezer bag, then stratify by refrigeration for two months. Second method, in the fall place the Gentian seeds in starter trays with seed starter mix that has been moistened. Cover the trays with glass or plastic to help keep the moisture in. Place the trays in a cold frame outdoors or place the flat in a protected area outdoors. Gentian seedlings can be transplanted into their permanent place either in spring or fall. Gentian plants require moist, humus soil that drains well.
