Fairy Wand (Chamaelirium luteum) is another member of the Lily family, and is a fairly uncommon Smoky Mountains wildflower. It is unusual in that the male and female flowers grow on separate plants. The male flower is longer and whiter, with the female tending towards greenish-white. Also called Devil’s Bit. The photos on this page were taken along Schoolhouse Gap Trail.
The William Britten Gallery on Glades Rd in Gatlinburg, TN features my complete display of Smoky Mtns photos. There may be a Smokies memory there for you to take home!
