Chamaelirium luteum or Fairywand, is a herbaceous perennial that is found in areas with moist, rich, acidic soils. The leaves form a basal rosette, with some leaves growing along the inflorescence stalk. Showy, white flowers bloom from March to June. This species is dioecious, meaning that an individual plant grows only male or female flowers. In order to produce seeds, two separate plants are needed. Capsule fruits are produced in the fall.
