- Large-Flowered Bellwort
Large-flowered bellwort is a larger plant with (surprise) a bigger flower. The leaf on the large-flowered clasps the stem, while the sessile version has a sessile (un-stemmed) leaf.
We started out as wildflowers from the bicycle trails of western Pennsylvania, but we've grown!
