My Colby-Sawyer Experience

“The work load increased the second year, which made the class more difficult than expected, but we all made it through.”

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.
