Gentiana baeuerlenii

Status: Endangered on the EPBC Act list

Baeuerlen’s gentian is an annual herb less than 4 cm tall, usually with several stems branching
from near the base of the plant (OEH, 2012). The species is autumn-flowering (March-April)
(Adams, 1996) with 1-3 flowers per plant (NSW NPWS, 2001). Single, small, bell-shaped flowers,
green on the outside and pale-blue inside, are produced at the ends of the stems (OEH, 2012).
The germination requirements for the species are poorly known (Environment ACT, 2004).

    Climate change and the resulting reductions in rainfall during recent years; particularly in autumn and winter; in the areas where this species has been recorded is likely to have had an adverse impact on this species which is dependent on seepage areas remaining moist (OEH; 2012).
