Description

Bellwort loves plenty of shade

The Bellwort is most often found in shaded places, such as in woodlands or other wooded areas or ravines. Growing either singularly or in pairs, the Bellwort will bear one or two flowers with long slightly spiraled and narrow petals which hang downwards.

The Bellwort (also commonly known as the Bellflower or Merrybell) is a beautiful, but unusually shaped, a flower which acquired its name by the peculiar direction in which it grows

 It's long narrow leaves appear to twist around the stem causing an exaggerated drooped appearance. Resembling the presence of a bell, this flower has acquired many nicknames over the years. The Bellwort plant is exclusively native to North America, primarily found in areas of the south and west.
Bellwort, also known as merry bells and bellflowers, are flowering plants related to the lily. There are five known species in the genus Uvularia. They are common to the eastern halves of the United States and Canada where they tend to grow on slopes and ravines in moist wooded areas. It can reach up to eighteen inches in height with its blossoms reaching an inch in length. Small downward-hanging flowers bloom in May or June and last for roughly two weeks. Bellwort was sometimes used to treat throat ailments because of its flower's resemblance to the uvula hanging in the back of a human throat, which is also the source of its scientific name. The central stem will divide into two or three stems when the plant is mature.
