I'm prepared to declare the small plant seen in New York as Lesser Pyrola, Pyrola minor. It's much smaller than the other two, and the remaining choice, green-flowered pyrola, should have longer leaf stems, and should grow more in the mountains.
I showed most of the pictures of this plant a couple of days ago. So, today I'll rerun the leaves of the three plants for comparison.
Pyrola minor- leaf back, lesser pyrola
Pyrola elliptica- shinleaf
Pyrola rotundifolia- round-leaved pyrola
Assignments tomorrow. I may find something interesting. If not, I have one more similar plant to share.
