The Blazing Star (Chamaelirium luteum) is also known as Devil’s-bit, Fairy-wand, etc. In Pittsylvania County it is commonly seen in open woods and borders. This is a springtime species that shows up in May to early June.
Since my main objective with the PittPaths pictures/articles is to help identify wild-flowering plants, a long written text is often superfluous.
These photos were clicked in the month of May 1970.
