Delicate and low growing perennial forming mats of evergreen trailing stems of up to 3 feet long. Pink bell-shaped flowers emerge on 6-inch, tall, slender, woody stems. The name ‘twinflower’ comes from the fact that flowers grow in pairs. From late spring to early summer, flowers attract bees, wasps, flies, and beetles.
Found in a variety of moisture and light conditions in forests and woodlands. Tolerates moderate to moist soils in all light conditions but prefers a highly organic soil type.
