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.
