Perfoliate Bellwort--there are three kinds of this Merry Bells.
I was beginning to despair of finding any pretty flowers to make this a worthwhile wildflower hike.
Then I saw these! The perfoliate means the stem pierces the leaf which these do, but so does Uvularia grandifolia.
The only sort that doesn't is the Mountain bellwort.
