Streptopus lanceolatus var. roseus (twistedstalk) is a native herbaceous perennial of the Lily family. It is easy to grow in a cool, shaded spot with moist and organically rich soil.
DESCRIPTION: The species name provides an excellent physical description of the plant: strepto, from the Greek, means twisted, and describes the zigzagging stem; lanceola, from the Latin, means lance-shaped, and describes the leaves; and finally roseus describes the pinkish color of the bell-shaped flowers.
