Description: You'll fall in love with the tiny snowflake-like, fringed flowers atop the thin stems of Bishop's Cap. The upright capsules are designed for a type of seed dispersal known as splash-cup dispersal. When raindrops strike the capsule, the splash sends seeds flying up to a meter away. The plants spread slowly by rhizomes and make a wonderful addition to deciduous woodlands and shade gardens. Bishop's Cap can tolerate drier full shade sites, although its preference is for medium soils and partial sun in the spring months.
