This plant blooms early in the season. It is very tiny (4-8 inches) and very easy to overlook hidden in the leaves. Finding some wildflowers is a lot like hunting Easter eggs, you often have to look low and under leaves. I found these blooming on the Chimney Tops Nature Trail in Great Smoky Mountains Park.
