Description: This delicate trailing plant is the only plant named after the father of scientific terminology, Carl Linnaeus. It is a beautiful legacy. Often missed, the stem is a trailing runner which sports paired leaves at regular intervals. The leaves are oval in shape with a prominent central vein dividing the leaf in two. Periodically, a y-shaped stem grows from the trailing stem, and terminates in two pinkish-white flowers.
