Sessil (Wild Oat) vs Appalachia Bellwort

Look closely at the stem of Uvularia puberula you will notice fine hairs that are not present in U. sessilifolia. Secondly, if you look at the interior of the petals of U. sessifolia you will notice distinct bumps. A third, non-diagnositic characteristic has to do with how much the leaves tend to unfurl before flowering. U. puberula tend to flower when the leaves look just like those seen here (still folded), whereas the leaves of U. sessiofolia are more open. ....@dsmorris
