Notes:

Grows only at the base of pine trees. Comes up through the pine needles. Seems to like the western sides of the trees. Blooms start as pea sized white balls that take almost a month to open and the blooms hang upside down.

    I found some of these last evening while looking for something else. Looks like Striped Pipsissewa – Chimaphila maculata – AKA: Spotted Wintergreen. https://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/288378/#b Apparently it is a member of the Heath or Heather Family -Ericaceae. It has a rather convoluted taxonomy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chimaphila Hope this helps. Thanks for posting!
