The Bellflower plant - Uvularia grandiflora - is a perennial member of the lily family that blooms in the early spring. It is one of the first woodland flowers to bloom in the spring, appearing as early as March.
A member of the family Colchicaceae is a flowering plant species native to eastern and central North America. The flowering Bellwort is 30 inches tall and 12 inches wide and adds visual interest to the garden throughout the summer. As soon as you plant the seeds, the stems grow more extended, creating a visual effect that appears to be needles threading through the foliage. After fully mature, light to moderate shade in a medium-moisture fertile soil is ideal. They are pretty tolerant of drought and require little additional watering once fully bloomed.
This plant spreads slowly due to rhizomes, which allows you to create a mass planting effect under shade trees or along wood margins in a relatively short period. Also, in April and May, various species of bees feed on nectar and collect pollen from flowers in bloom. These include bumblebees, mason bees, Halictid bees, and Andrenid bees.
It is also known by the names Largeflower Bellwort, Great Merrybells, and Yellow Bellwort, which references the flower's shape, size, and color. You can distinguish large-flowered Bellwort from other types of this plant by its perfoliate leaves and twisting petals, making it easy to identify. The petals of this flower are unusually twisted and hang in a manner that resembles a type of bell. Furthermore, these twisting yellow petals are also reminiscent of the human uvula, which is why these plants are also known as uvula flowers.
Depending on the variety, its leaves can grow up to 6 inches in length and 2 inches in width and possess pointy tips. The base of the leaf is round, completely encircling the main stem, and its flowers are pure white. Unlike other plants, the branches of this one are smooth and light green. A single plant may have multiple stems that grow together to form a clump of leaves. Their fruits are a three-sectioned capsule with round corners roughly the shape of an upside pyramid, with three sections. There are several seeds in every plant.
This plant reproduces by producing shoots from underground horizontal rhizomes, a type of underground root system. Generally speaking, this reproduction method produces large populations of plants, which you can find adorning the hillsides of woody areas in large numbers. Among other uses, these plants can treat snakebites, reduce swellings, and as a poultice for various types of topical wounds and skin inflammations.
