Description

I truly enjoyed seeing this for the first time. This plant is, after all, the plant that Linnaeus himself chose to attach his name to for all of posterity -- and just think, at the time he had nearly the whole world of flowers to choose from to immortalize himself, and he chose this one because, as he said, it is among the most modest of all plants with its low creeping habit and pretty but not ostentatious flowers. You gotta respect a man like that.

Common to abundant under conifers in sandy mixed woods, in boggy conifer swamps, and even along edges of forested dunes near shore of Lake Huron. The plant in the photo was the only one I found with a stray late-season inflorescence; it is not long-stalked with the drooping pedicels so distinctive for this species, but I am glad I got to see any flowers at all.

An old fashioned(by California standards) landscape plant that seem to be regaining popularity.

A nice nectaring plant for butterflies.

Description from Wikipedia

Linnaea is a plant genus which has often been classified in the family Caprifoliaceae (the Honeysuckle family) but may be more accurately considered to belong to its own family, Linnaeaceae. The genus includes a single, generally boreal to subarctic woodland subshrub species, Linnaea borealis, commonly known as Twinflower (sometimes written Twin Flower).
