PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Linaria purpurea
Perennial Toadflax
Very pretty!
Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, Perennial, Hardy
Flowering period Summer
Height 24-36in/.60-90cm

Soil preference Any reasonable, well-drained soil
Sowing time/depth Spring, Autumn, Surface
This delightful plant with its tall spikes of tiny purple or pink flowers resembling miniature snapdragons, which appear from a basal clump of fine, grey-green leaves, is attractive not only to right-minded humans, but to wildlife... it is much loved by butterflies and bees. It flowers from June right through to the first frosts and fresh flower spikes are lovely in flower arrangements.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow direct in Autumn or Spring, thinning as required. Self-seeds enthusiastically, but shallow-rooted, so it is not difficult to remove unwanted plants. N.B. It is impractical to remove all chaff, so a little is present. Just sow the contents of the pack as normal.
