Green-flowered Wintergreen

This flower is small and unassuming. You are likely to find it at the base of trees or in wooded areas. The plant itself is one stalk, of only 2-4 inches roughly, that is slightly reddish with basal leaves. The flowers alternate along the stalk. They are greenish-white bell shaped flowers with a thick style protruding from the bottom of the flower.
