Lily-of-the-Valley (Canada Mayflower) (Maianthemum canadense)

This plants can cover the forest floor like a green rug; and one of the first to appear in the spring under the conifers. It has two heart-shaped leaves that clasp the stem. The tiny white flowers are bunched in a small tower. The berries, white with spots, later turn pale red.
