This species is native to the upper Midwest and Great Lakes region. It is the first of its genus to bloom in our area, with creamy-white blossoms emerging in August, whereas others, like soapwort gentian, wait until October. It is a slow-to-establish species, but is long-lived thereafter. Like its kin, yellowish gentian is a favorite of Bombus impatiens, the most commonly encountered bumblebee across much of eastern North America.
