Notes:

Found growing in my backyard in the woods. Could this be Relict Trillium? If not what is it? It looks to be some kind of Trillium.

    Looks like spotted wintergreen to me. Check it out here:

    I’ve always known it as a “pipsisseewah”; not sure about the spelling. It grows in shady areas, in forrests, and has a single stem flower on it once a year.

    Pipsisseewah and Spotted Wintergreen are, I think, two different plants but only in that one of them only has one flower on it’s stem and the other has two on the same stem. All flowers seem to be upside down. Different sources give different descriptions. Also could it be a Rattlesnake weed leaf (little yellow flower in the spring)?
