Folio 10v Back to Plant List
folio 10v

Folio 10v, Twinflower (Linnaea borealis), is found in cool temperate forests of Europe, Asia and North America. This small plant has slender stems with opposite, evergreen oval leaves (the leaves of the plant 10v are very long), the flowers are paired, pendulous, and pale pink with a five-lobed corolla. This was Linnaeus’ favorite plant—it was named after him and he took the flower as his personal symbol when he was raised to the Swedish nobility in 1757.
