Canada Mayflower

Also known as wild lily-of-the-valley, Canada Mayflower shares its genus, Maianthemum, with False Solomon's Seal and several other plants that also bear racemes of tiny white flowers. Canada Mayflower grows close to the ground, often in dense colonies. I photographed this flower yesterday afternoon at Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve.
