Dutchman's Breeches (a.k.a. "Little Boy Plant") is closely related to Squirrel Corn (a.k.a. "Little Girl Plant") and the leaves are nearly identical. The flowers look like little white pants hanging on a line to dry. The plant is only a few inches high, so you'll have to look closely to find it.
Perennial
