Botany picture #37: Pyrola asarifolia
Pyrola asarifolia (Ericaceae), Canada, 2012. When comparing it with the previous botany picture, it is not immediately clear to me why it is called the Asarum-leafed Pyrola. Apparently the flowers are pink, but this plant may already be past flowering and developing fruits.
