Botanical super-crop challenge

Image of beetleweed

Description:

Detail of a native flower from North Carolina. Anyone care to guess it? (I'm not sure if this is difficult or not!)Answer: Galax urceolata (see also Will Cook's account), "Beetleweed", or simply "Galax". This was in full bloom near the top of Grandfather Mountain on 1 July--I think it is past at lower elevations.
