Indian cucumber (Medeola virginiana)

Anne Arundel,, MD(Zone 7b)

Went walking in our humble woods today and found this!
It's so delightful to find a new native, when I am plagued by non native invasives all around here.
I'll add my pictures later-they are on the phone.

Sorry the focus left something to be desired. There was a nice patch of them. A few blooming size and more small ones.
Indian cucumber-root.

It's always great to hear of a place that's not covered in non-natives!
What an interesting plant: Wikipedia says "It is the only currently recognized plant species in the genus Medeola." The other species are now Asparagus.
