Description

Not sure about this one. Needless to say, any pyrola flowering at this time of the year is uncommon, so this is not exactly a "typical" specimen, but the cordate leaf bases and pink flowers would seem to suggest P. asarifolia.

Infrequent; growing with Cornus canadensis, Orthilia secunda, Linnaea borealis, Chimaphila umbellata, and Gaultheria procumbens in mixed woods on old dune ridges along Lake Huron.

Description from Wikipedia

Pyrola L. (syn. Pirola Neck.) is a genus of evergreen herbaceous plants in the family Ericaceae. Under the old Cronquist system it was placed in its own family Pyrolaceae, but genetic research showed it belonged in the family Ericaceae. The species are commonly known as wintergreen, a name shared with several other related and unrelated plants (see wintergreen for details). They are native to northern temperate and Arctic regions.
