Uvularia sp. ( Bellwort )

Seen along Ash Hopper and Schoolhouse trails and Little River road.
The flower stalk appears to pass through the leaf in the large-flowered bellwort and in the similar perfoiliate bellwort. However, the large flower bellwort has a downy underside and the perfoilate bellwort is smooth.
