This delightful little East Coast Native Plant is a
member of the Liliaceae
family. It grows from a tough, fibrous rhizome
similar to a Trillium
rhizome. Male and Female flowers are produced on separate
plants. They are
distinctly different and equally attractive.
"Devils Bit", a common name that I still haven't figured out is also known as "Fairy Wand", a moniker that's easy to fathom once you witness the wandlike flowers.
From a basal rosette of 4"-8" long, lanceolate, dark green, glossy leaves, shoots the flower wand in mid to late Spring.
Easy to grow, and perfect for the front of that shady border.
