Yeah, the photos I am seeing show the flowers more pointed, but the leaves look similar. Thank for the ID!

I have seen this species in northern California and Washington, where it occurs in Douglas-fir/western redcedar forests. I think there must be some variation in the "pointiness" of the petals in different parts of its range. The ones I have seen recently look a lot like your photo, but the petals are more pointed.
