Large-Flowered Bellwort
Latin name: Uvularia grandiflora
Member of the Lily family (Liliaceae)

A single yellow flower droops at the tip of a forking leafy stem. The leaves clasp the stem and are whitish and downy underneath. The nodding, bell-like, 6-point flower is smooth inside. It grows to a height of 6 to 20 inches. It is found in moist woods. It blooms between April and June.

In the Clinch Mountain area, the Large-Flowered Bellwort is sometimes found along with colonies of Solomon's Seal, however it is much less common.
