The gentian is named for Gentius, who was a king of ancient Illyria; this king supposedly discovered the virtues in the herb during the 2nd century BC. The use of the herb in the medical systems of classical Greece is attested by the name gentian - a tribute to the king.

A shady and sheltered on loamy soil are the habitats preferred by gentian plants. Autumn is the harvest season, during which roots are dug up and quickly dried for later use.
