Gentiana acaulis, Linn. (G. excisa, Presl.). Gentianella. Stemless Gentian. Fig. 1628. By the botanists of continental Eu. this is often split up into the 4 or 5 following species. The plants that Linnaeus had in mind were probably mostly G. clusii and G. kochiana. For pictures of G. acaulis in its widest sense see B.M. 52. G.C. III. 15:236. G. W. 3, p. 289. J.H. III. 52:59. R.B. 28:204. Gn, 48,. P. 146; 54, p. 39. F.S. 23: 2421, where a more detailed account of the 4 following species is given. A Var. kochii, Hort., is known but it may well be G. kochiana. A white-fld. form, var. alba, is advertised.

Also known as: Gentiana kochiana, Perr. & Song. Lvs. large, flat, thin, spreading, oval or broadly oblong, light green: calyx- lobes oblong, limp, more or less contracted at the base and separated by truncate sinuses; corolla with 5 blackish green spots on the throat. May, June. Common in pastures on granitic Alps.—Dislikes lime. It seems almost certain that this is the G. acaulis var. Kochii of many gardeners. CH
