Small semi-evergreen NE plant #1

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.
