Pink Wintergreen

Pyrola asarifolia, commonly known as Bog Wintergreen, Liverleaf Wintergreen or Pink Wintergreen, is a plant species of the genus Pyrola native to western North America. It is found primarily on forest margins at mid latitude in the Pacific Northwest and northern California. It is so named simply because its leaves maintain their green color through winter. The Pyrola asarifolia flower stalk stands 10–20 cm high, and holds about a dozen drooping pinkish bell-shaped flowers. The leaves themselves cluster around the base, and are round and smooth green.
