Coptis trifolia is a beautiful short ground cover that is found growing in the mossy under story of shady wet forests as well as in bogs. It has small dainty white flowers that pop up in early spring. 

Note, this plant is quite difficult and slow to grow, as such I do not recommend it unless you have ideal conditions you have a moist shady area with acidic soils rich in organic matter and or sand, as it is prone to dying from drying out.
