Uvularia grandifloraAlso known as:
large flower bellwort
Uvularia grandiflora is an unusual looking species. Both the light-green leaves and the large yellow flowers are twisted and drooping, giving them a wilted appearance, though healthy. The plants can grow up to 2' tall. The pendulous, somewhat bell shaped flowers are 1 1/2" long.
Largeflower bellwort is an attractive and unusual plant for woodlands and shaded gardens. It has a clumping habit and looks best naturalized or planted in groups. It prefers dappled light in part-shade, with rich, well-drained moist soil. It blooms in mid-spring: April, May. Zones 3-7
Established clumps may be divided in early spring or fall. This plant will self-seed. Collected seeds should not be allowed to dry out, and should be sown immediately after ripening in late summer.
Ideal for shaded borders. Young growth might be susceptible to slugs.
