ABSTRACT
Gentiana rigescens Franch. ex Hemsl., a local medicinal plant in Yunnan Province, had very rich resources and was widely distributed in nature in the past. However, the population of G. rigescens is shrinking and the wild plants are rare in Yunnan Province, so it is on the verge of extinction at present. Systemic reproductive technique for G. rigescens is established after many years of efforts and illustrated in this study.
