Small semi-evergreen NE plant #1

bgastoneDecember 5, 2012

I've been noticing this growing in dry shade under mainly oaks and white pine here in CT. Note seed pod. This is bigger leaved and more likely to clump compared with #2. I'm guessing native, looks like ginger family.

Yes, Pyrola rotundifolia or maybe Pyrola elliptica. In the Heath family, Ericaceae.

A native wildflower.
