Sessile Bellwort Uvularia sessilifolia
Lily Liliaceae family

Leaves are sessile, but they do not clasp the stem. Oblong or oval-shaped leaves are pale beneath. The stem usually forks above mid-way.

Flower is a solitary, slender, creamy-yellow, bell-shaped, hanging flower at the end of the stem.

Fruit is a triangular pod.

Form/Habitat:Sessile bellwort grows 6-12" high in woods and thickets. I found this one growing with Goldthread.
