Bunchberry
Bunchberry a.k.a. Canadian Dogwood, Cornus Canadensis.

Also known as Creeping Dogwood and Dwarf Cornel.

The white "petals" are bracts - specialized leaves which start out green. The actual flowers are clustered in the center. By summer's end they will have formed bunches of bright red berries.

Near the summit of Eastman Mountain, June 16 2007
