Notes:

    Sure looks like Polygala paucifolia. Thank you so much. This has puzzled me for years

    Maybe a species in the milkworts genus (Polygala). This could be the fringed milkwort (P. paucifolia). Check it out and see if you have a match. Best wishes! https://gobotany.newenglandwild.org/species/polygala/paucifolia/
