My Colby-Sawyer Experience

“Your work... is to resist the easy answer, to seek out the truth... just as the author's work is to face the blank page with faith and optimism.”
Humanities Instructor David Elliott

175th Celebration

In 2012 the college celebrated 175 years as an institution of teaching and learning. Visit the 175th website for more information and to view photos of the events.

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.
