These three plants were seen on my last hike on the Gold Branch Trail in Marietta, Ga. All are small plants growing very close to the forest floor.

    stone: I had no doubt you knew both species. You have offered helpful corrections to a number of my posts (me being neither botanist or horticulturist, just a rank amateur limited mostly to stuff growing in the wild in North Georgia).

    well… Many websites use the pipsissewa nomenclature for both… a case in point: But I take your point… I got lazy, falling back on the common name of the plant rather than posting the botanical name.

    No. 2 looks a little more like chimaphila maculata (spotted wintergreen or striped wintergreen) than chimaphila umbellata (Pipsissewa).
