Uvularia grandiflora (Large-flowered Bellwort)
When planted en masse, graceful, nodding flowers create a lovely visage when they peek from under foliage, which also is attractive, especially to white-tailed deer. Even if deer are not a bother, foliage may disappear as temperatures heat up. Depending on where it grows, this native perennial* may act like an ephemeral and enter early dormancy.
*It is native in five MD counties (including Montgomery and Prince George’s) and mostly in PA’s southwest corner. In VA it is common in the mountains north to Rockingham County and infrequent in the southwest Piedmont. It is not native to NoVA or DC.
