    That isn’t a Mimulus whichhave opposite foliage. It’s a basal rosette of some sort. You can see the new rolled leaf unfurling.

    Was the area very damp? It is reminiscent of a Mimulus. Although I believe the name might have changed.

    Floral, why does it remind you of Mimulus?

    Because that's a bit like what Mimulus leaves look like? And it has runners. http://www.aphotoflora.com/images/phrymaceae/mimulus_guttatus_monkeyflower_leaves_shoot_tip_16-06-11_1.jpg

    I emphasise that it's only a suggestion.

    Guttata leaves do look similar, but it's a western species. The two Mimulus species in Georgia, alatus, ringens, have lanceolate leaves. Mimulus guttatatus is now Erythranthe guttata, (Fisch DC.) G.L. Nesom. It's possible someone in the east could be growing it.

    It is a wild plant and it is in the deep woods with all shade on a bank. I will keep watching it for flowers.

    I saw the new leaf unrolling but assumed it was two leaves. I thought it was opposite But seems not.
