Can someone identify this plant, please?

I used to know what it is called but can't think of the name now. I was delighted to find it growing in our yard again. But there is a yellow jacket nest in the ground near this (which I discovered yesterday, much to my sorrow) which I need to get rid of. I don't want to kill the plant by using insect spray. In the past, I've had good luck with a heavy application of Sevin dust over the hole. The YJs seem to get in on their bodies and carry it into the hole so I will try that again.

gmom, it's pipsissewa, a delightful name for a sweet little plant, Chimaphylla umbellata. Below is a link for more info.

Here is a link that might be useful: Pipsissewa, Yay!

Thank you so much, phylla. I will rename the photos so I'll always know what it is.
