Undergoing MyBlogLog Verification

Thursday, December 18, 2008


Propagating Linnaea or Twinflower can be done either in the spring or fall by gathering the stolons or creeping stems, the same way grass grows, however it takes years for the stolons to appear, but it is in the Honeysuckle family so its blooms are fragrant. It is one of the first plants to appear after a forest fire, it is found around Douglas Firs and Maples, and it prefers an east or north exposure in a sandy acidic soil either in full sun or partial shade. Its flowers are a pinkish white and blooms from July to September, reaches a maximum of 6" in height, is evergreen, and will tolerate light foot traffic.
