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.
