"Uvularia grandiflora" (Large-Flowered Bellwort or merrybells), "Uvularia sessilifolia" (Sessile-leafBellwort) and "Trientalis borealis"  (Starflower) are just a few of the Latin names for spring ephemerals*   that Carol Andrews says we can grow at home.  Don't know much about spring ephemerals?  She recommends spending more time lying down in the woods.  Carol Andrews is the president of the Wild Ones Minnesota Arrowhead Chapter.

* from the Greek ephēmeros  "lasting a day."
