The principal difference between the perfoliate bellwort and the preceding species is that the leaves of the latter are united at their bases about the stems. This gives a pleasing effect, as though the stems had pierced through the leaves for the purpose of throwing the flowers more into prominence. Both varieties are found rather generally in rich woods.
