For more information on the habitat, vegetation, and weather of Index, the forest in which this specimen was found, please see the journal entry for May 12, 2012 here on iNaturalist. This false lily of the valley was a common sight in the under story of this particular forest. It grew in large carpets all over the forest floor. I had seen this species on the UW campus and not known what it was, so I'm glad I got the chance to learn about it on this trip. This plant is also known as snakeberry and two-leaved Solomon's seal and it produces a non-flowering shoot, a shoot with small, white flowers, and red, speckled berries. This particular specimen had the non-flowering shoots.
