The long lasting flowers of Uvularia grandiflora are something I really look forward to every Spring. And every Spring, my robust stand of "Large Flowered Bellwort" slowly opens their large, pendulous, bright golden yellow flowers that resemble inverted flowing candle flames. Average plant height is about 18" - 24" and the medium green foliage of the plant provides a perfect foil for the unusually shaped flowers.
The name Uvularia comes from a part of the human anatomy, the Uvula, which is that funny little appendage hanging down at the back of your throat. Can you see the resemblance? Isn't botanical nomenclature easy? I find it curious that the majority of people queried confuse the word Uvula with the word Vulva, another part of the human anatomy..........
Uvularia grandiflora is a very long lived, hardy perennial and is easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in part to full shade. In nature, it occurs in moist, humusy soil in part shade and is native to more than half of the US and Canada - //plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=UVGR
Hardiness is USDA Zones 4-10 with full shade a must in the deep south.
It's an excellent companion plant for Hostas, Hellebores, Arisaemas and Trilliums. The list goes on and on.
I wish that I could say that they're 100% deerproof, but on ocassion, a curious young fawn may take a nibble. Different deer populations have different tastes and may completely ignore them. I'm also building up a nice supply of two other native Uvularia species, Uvularia sessilifolia and Uvularia perfoliata. These species are smaller in stature, but equally as showy and are perfect for a shady rock garden, along a path or in the front of a shade border. I hope to have them available next Spring. In the meantime.............
I've built a nice stock of 5 year old flowering size Uvularia grandiflora and I know that they'll make a great addition to your garden and will bring you the same pleasure that they bring me every Spring for many, many years to come.
