This flower is similar to the
Trout Lily or Adder's Tongue but the leave characteristics are slightly
different. The Bellwort leaf does not have the mottled purplish colouring
of the Trout Lily. As well, the Bellwort flower is slightly larger in size.
The Bellwort belongs to the Lily family.
This Bellwort was found along an old abandoned railway line bordering a marshy area where the soil was moist and rich. Bellworts inhabit the same environments or habitats as Trilliums and are often times just as abundant.
