Twinleaf (Jeffersonia diphylla)

from 9.95

Found in rich, moist woods, Twinleaf has a large, simple leaf that is divided into two identical parts and an 8-petaled, pure white flower in early spring. The fruit is a green pear-shaped capsule with a hinged top. It grows to 12 inches.

In 1792, this rare and desirable native woodland perennial was named to honor Thomas Jefferson by his friend and fellow botanist William Bartram, the "Father of American Botany." Jefferson grew the plant at Monticello.
