Artist's Description

This wildflower grows on a tall stem bearing several drooping orange flowers with red/brown spots and 6 strongly curved back petal segments.
It grows to a height of 1 to 2 1/2 feet, flowering from May through June in moist woodlands.
The range is Ontario east to Nova Scotia, south to Florida, west to Louisiana, and north to Illinois and Minnesota.
The roots of this plant are brittle, tasting and smelling much like a cucumber. It was used by Native Americans for food, today the plant is becoming scarce. Birds eat the fruits when berries turn blue/purple and the base of leaves turn red.
