This choice native perennial grows in abundance along the alluvial slopes of Monticello mountain, often in association with Virginia Bluebells.  It was likely first brought into cultivation during the early nineteenth century.  The plant grows from small bulbs and goes dormant quickly after flowering, often spreading seed to increase the colony in future seasons.
