I found this plant deep in the woods of central West Virginia. It is very cold out, and there is ice nearly everywhere.

Thumb of 2018-01-31/Jai_Ganesha/0421c0

It was on a northeast-facing slope, growing within the mosses. When the trees have leaves, this area must get very little direct sunlight.

This plant looks vaguely familiar, but I can't place it. I'm sure it's something simple. I'm not sure that it's native to this area, because it looked out of place with nearly everything around it dormant and frozen.
Keep going!
