Deep Southern Gardening Mystery #4

I saw this flower growing wild on the edge of a riprap path that went down a mountain, in the woods in northern Georgia. I’ve never seen anything like it before. The plant was low-lying on the ground, and it only had this one flower on it. It obviously needs a little sun, and it blooms mid-summer in a cooler climate than central Alabama where I live; up there, it ranged last week from the mid-70s to mid-80s.

Anybody know what it is?
