Artist's Description

Wild Oats Uvularia sessilifolia (Liliaceae Family)

The Small Bellwort, Uvularia sessilifolia, is also know as the Sessile bellwort and commonly referred to as “Wild Oats”. This beautiful cream colored flower hangs lazily from unstalked, sessile, leaves. The long stem, below the leaf & flower cropping, can be 6 to 12 inches tall and is straight and smooth except for occasional angulate branches. They are usually found in groups in forests and wooded areas throughout eastern North America from April through June.

I took this photograph along the north rim trail above the Tallulah Gorge in Tallulah Falls, GA USA.
Olympus E-3 and Oly 35 mm macro, f/6.3 @ 1/40 sec. ISO 100

Uvularia: Latin for small conical body in the center of the human palate (little tongue), referring to the way the flower hangs from its stalk
Sessilifolia: Latin meaning "with unstalked or sessile leaves
