The book "How to Know the Wildflowers" (1922) by Mrs. William Starr Dana says the bright flowers of Wood Betony are found in the May woods alongside Columbine and Yellow Violet. Near Philadelphia they are said to be among the earliest flowers, coming soon after the trailing arbutus. Later in the year, the plant attracts attention "by its uncouth spikes of brown seed-pods."
