This species is very similar to the Prince's Pine or Pipsissewa, but can readily be distinguished by the white mottling of its tapering leaves. It does not grow quite so high either, and the leaves are lance-shaped, with sharp, distant teeth along the margins. The leaves are thick and smooth, and are arranged on the reddish stalk in pairs and in whorls. They are dark green and mottled with white along the veins. The white or pinkish flowers are quite like those of the preceding species. They are a trifle larger, and lack the pink ring in the centre. They are found from June to August in dry woods, from Maine and Ontario to Minnesota, and southward to Georgia and Mississippi.
