May 22, 2005
These flowers were blooming along the Schoolhouse Gap trail in the Smokies in mid-May. Devil's Bit is a dioecious plant, the flowers are either male or female. The female plants can grow up to 4 feet tall, the males grow half that size. These are all male flowers. Does that make them a "bachelor" group? :)
