This plant had eluded me for years, it took an 8-mile hike to Charlie's Bunion on the Appalchian Trail in the Smokies for me to finally see it in bloom. But see it I did! There were huge patches of it along the trail. Later in the year there will be blue berries where the flowers are, thus the common name "Bluebead Lily."
Perennial
Where found: Great Smoky Mountains NP
