True Lover's Knot - Paris sp.
This is an unusual and rare plant to be growing in upstate New York. I've been consulting experts and the species ID is uncertain so far. It might be Paris verticillata, but Paris quadrifolia is also possible. It might have initially been planted. Last year, I counted one plant, but yesterday, I noted at least 20 plants.
Habitat: Mixed forest/bog edge; upstate New York
Last year's observation:
