Found this in central kentucky.... the picture was taken in late summer. Sorry I don't have many pictures, but it looks pretty distinctive to me. Any help or a point in the right direction would be gratefully appreciated!
I've combed some kentucky plant databases a bit but I cant seem to find one with an image galary, so it's a matter of me clicking on a random name of a plant and hoping somehow it's this one lol

That's really pretty - it reminds me of Rattlesnake Plantain which (I think) is a terrestrial orchid. Yes, look up Goodyera pubescens.

You may be disappointed if the flowers are anything like the west coast version. Smiling

@HamiltonSquare, Goodyera oblongifolia grows in our neck of the woods. Goodyera pubescens is the east coast version and, if oranges' photo is any indication, they are prettier. Smiling
