Native to Northern Europe, Field Gentian is a small flowered relative of the garden Gentians, with clusters of purplish, tubular flowers. Field Gentian is bitter-tasting and one of several plants used to flavour ales before the introduction of Hops. Native species were sometimes made into a tonic used medicinally and ued to stimulate appetite.
