The scent of twinflower gives it its common Scandinavian names: Perfume flower and Little lily-of-the valley.
Twinflower was first recorded near Aberdeen in 1795, and named after the famous botanist Carl Linnaeus. It is an iconic yet tiny species of Caledonian pine forests.

Twinflower needs cross pollination to form viable seed, but the remaining populations are too distant for small pollinating flies to reach them.
