Diminutive Woodland Plantcomments (3) September 4th, 2013 in gallery
I'm back again with another unsolved plant mystery. These little plants grow in my front "yard" under a dogwood tree that is, in turn, under a larger canopy of huge Carolina pines. As you can see, they have variegated, serrated leaves and the little "berry" pictured opens to reveal a tiny white bell-like flower that has no fragrance. They look to me like a native woodland wildflower so I've left them and they are flourishing. Does anyone know what these are and if I should keep them around?
