Bishop's Cap (Mitella diphylla)

  • I’m native to New York state and Tompkins County, NY.

    I'm a woodland species.

    I have lovely white fringed flowers on tall stems.

    My seed pods are upright and open so that when rain hits them the seeds are sent flying. This is called splash-cup dispersal.

    I spread slowly over time by rhizomes.
