I love the name of this flower: Fairy Bells (Disporum lanuginosum).
The plant is about 30 inches high, the leaves droop and the pale green flowers hide beneath the leaves. The flowers are so delicate they are aptly named fairy bells. They are actually an Appalachian flower and are hard to find in Pennsylvania unless you’re in the mountains.
For Dianne Machesney these Fairy Bells were a “life flower” when she took this picture last weekend in the Laurel Highlands.
