Plants With Winter Interest Part 4 - Rattlesnake Plantain (Goodyera pubescens)

Jewel Orchid in Eckhart Shade Garden
I already introduced our native Jewel Orchid, or Rattlesnake Plantain (Goodyera pubescens) to you this past summer.  Nothing new to add, just wanted to show how it looks in winter.  The flower stalk is gone, but the beautiful evergreen leaves, with their unique variegation remain. 

Pictures were taken New Year's Eve at around 10 a.m.
