Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Better known as Toadflax, this hardy perennial is a cottage garden favourite, constantly busy with butterflies. The upright flower spikes are packed with tiny purple nectar-rich blooms, each of a delicate and intriguing shape, which continue from June right through to September. Linaria purpurea blends beautifully into herbaceous borders, but is equally at home in gravel gardens or wildlife areas. Thriving on a light, well-drained soil, toadflax is undemanding and easy to grow. The blooms also make delightful cut flowers for summer bouquets. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 30cm (12").
