Have you ever heard of a flower called Linnea borealis? One of my relatives named their daughter Linnea so I have been trying to purchase some seeds for them. Could you tell me a little about the plant and where I could acquire seed?

Linnea borealis is commonly called twinflower. It is native to the woodlands of North America and Northern Eurasia. The pale pink, bell-shaped flowers occur in pairs and appear in summer. Grow this plant in moist acid soil and a partially shaded location. Check the internet or catalogues and garden centers specializing in woodland wildflowers.
