Clintonia umbellulata
Location: Woods (tentative) - need to confirm when it flowers
Mountainious region of the eastern United States into Canada. A low plant with a basal clump of broad, glossy, slightly pubescent leaves surrounding an 6-20 in. leafless stem topped by a cluster of nodding white flowers speckled with green and purple. Black, spherical berries follow the flowers. Long-lasting leaves remain green all summer, creating an excellent groundcover for shady spots.
