Description

I noticed dozens of these Chimaphila umbellata, or Prince’s Pine, aka Pipsissewa, growing along the Grand Ridge trail out of Deer Park, at about 5000'. The plants have serrated leaves and small round pink flowers that weren't yet open. They were growing in the sun in soil covered in conifer needles.

They are classified in the family Ericaceae, but were formerly placed in the segregate family Pyrolaceae.
