Uvularia a Popular Wildflower

Uvularia graniflora is a wild flower that grows anywhere from the Appalachians west to the Dakotas, Kansas and Oklahoma from Louisiana and Georgia in the South to Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec in Canada.

Grows to nearly 3 feet tall and 12 inches broad. These perennial plants have pendant like leaves that are hairy on the undersides. Uvularia blooms in mid to late spring and produces large yellow bell shaped pendant flowers that can appear single or paired. In late summer the Uvularia will split open and release seeds that have attached food bodies which are attractive to ants that collect and redistribute the seeds.
