Miterwort or Bishop's Cap
Mitella diphylla
Saxifrage Family - Saxifragaceae
In addition to a long spike of tiny, white, fairly evenly spaced flowers, the stem at its middle has a single pair of leaves. Each of the 5 petals is intricately dissected so that the flower resembles a snowflake. (Photographed - May)
Stem leaves are opposite, stalkless, toothed and mainly three lobed, while the basal leaves are long-stalked, similarly lobed and heart-shaped.
