Description

The trail up to the summit of Mt. Walker has masses of Linnaea borealis or Twinflower growing beneath the mixed conifer forest. The small white flowers grow in pairs, like twins, and the leaves look similar to Kinnikinnick.

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).

No range data available.
