This is in my woods. Its evergreen. Kind of looks like Vinca with reddish margins and waxy looking leaves.

Looks like Chimaphila maculata, often called Pipsissewa or Spotted Wintergreen. Best left where found, as it requires a symbiotic relationship with a certain type of fungus, usually found in very acidic soil, making it difficult to transplant.

I agree. It grows wild here and I also don't recommend trying to transplant. It has cute little white flowers. I can't remember what time of year, though. The leaves are minty when crushed.
