I found this growing very low to the ground in the woods behind our house in upstate SC. I almost stepped on it but stopped to dig it up because the foilage is so pretty and unique for our wooded area. I was thinking it might be in the violet family but probably not as those are more tropical
your plant is one of our native orchids, named Goodyera pubescens. I always used to call it Rattlesnake orchid. It has small white orchid flowers in the summer, usually, and it is evergreen.
I hope this helps.
