A little woodland plant, delicate and pretty, with a slender, hairy stem, from nine inches to two feet tall, springing from a pretty cluster of hairy leaves, variable in shape, but usually with three or five lobes. The starry flowers are three-quarters of an inch across, with white petals, prettily-slashed. This is sometimes called Star of Bethlehem, but that name belongs to an Ornithogalum, grown in gardens.
