- ‘The similar sessile-leaf bellwort has leaves that clasp the stem and smaller cream-colored flowers.’
- ‘The stems of the flowered bellworts rise to your knees, bend, and droop low under their heavy ovate leaves and lemon-colored, bell-shaped flowers.’
- ‘Virginia bluebells, bellworts, wild ginger and wild columbines are only a few to be seen in the park.’
- ‘In Kentucky, the plant is often associated with azaleas, mountain laurels and bellworts under the dappled shade of birch trees.’
