Blazing Star (Chamaelirium luteum)

Blazing Star:
A Springtime Species

By William T. Hathaway

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.
