    Both of these plants were spotted on Vancouver Island near Yellowpoint in coastal conifer forest on May 22. The pink one does not appear to be coral root or candystick. Have combed through my Pojar Mackinnon but can't ID them. Your thoughts are appreciated.

    The first one looks like the unopened flowers of Pyrola minor, except that the evergreen leaves are missing and the flowers face up instead of down. So it might be something else.

    Yes, I wondered about that, but as with many other comparisons, the flowers are pointing the wrong way and no basal leaves.

    The other is Enchanter's nightshade.
