This plant was observed in multiple locations along a heavily wooded forest trail in the Delaware Water Gap National Park. I observed the plant almost flat on the ground in some locations as well as 6-8 inches high. The trail was well-shaded and a natural woodland forest.

    Thanks for the speedy reply. You nailed it. Since first spotting the plant on the trail, I also found a small patch in the lower, wooded area of our property. Luckily, this area is au naturel and far from my husband’s riding lawnmower. It is a lovely plant.
