The little bells of this plant must be sought for. Look among the leaves around a mossy, wet stump, and you may find a weak, triangular stem about 20 inches long, with flowers here and there on slender pedicels. By means of tiny hooks along the angles of the stem the plant is able to raise itself and keep from being utterly smothered by the stronger growths around it. Maine to Nebraska, south to Georgia and Kentucky.
