I have this ground cover plant all over my mostly shady back yard. It is tiny, flat, close to the ground with dark green pointy leaves and a little taller stem with rosy pink "bead" flowers on top. I have not been able to identify this for years! Location: Southern New Jersey

Well, I'm going to go out on a limb here, sight unseen, and answer that it's partridgeberry (mitchella repens).
