Moneses uniflora   One-flowered Wintergreen

Moneses uniflora whole Moneses uniflora close

There were a reasonable number of flowering plants at this site but the lack of light under the trees and the nodding nature of this particular plant presented quite a challenge for the photographer who wanted a photo of the open flower.

M. uniflora is found up to 7,000 feet particularly in coniferous woods throughout the Mediterranean countries.
