Shade, to part shade; rich, moist, neutral,woodsy soil; if not one of the woodland wonders of the world- at least a woodland is more wonderful with it; like many spring wildflowers, Twinleaf blossoms soon after emerging from beneath the leaf litter; the large white flowers resemble those of bloodroot and remain very briefly (don’t sneeze around these flowers); the unusual leaves which are paired and emerge pinkish look like a pair of lungs’ seed pods on stalks have hinged lids that open and drop shiny, brown seeds for ants to scatter; snip off the stalk with the empty seed pod, turn it upside down and you have a Colonial or Indian pipe; plant is found in rich woods over limestone and combines well with dwarf larkspur, blue cohosh, and Dutchman’s breeches (to name a few); about 1’ tall; blooms April; zones 4-8; WV. ecotype.
