Shade id...!!

worm_ctJuly 5, 2013

I've been trying to figure out what these plants are... i don't think they're weeds. Both are full shade, I'm in the NW corner of Connecticut (US)

The leaves are opposite in this first one and the flowers are tiny. the plant is less then a foot high, there are a couple of them. As I said, it's full shade

Broad-leaved enchanter's nightshade, Circaea canadensis. Most sources will use the old name, C. lutetiana.

It is a native plant but some might consider it a weed because of the bristly fruits that stick to clothing and fur.
