Masses of delicate purple-blue snapdragon flowers throughout summer.
The dwarf snapdragon, Chaenorhinum origanifolium, is an alpine plant with a delightful spreading habit.

In spring and summer these are complemented by small purple snapdragon flowers with yellow throats.
Excellent for rockery, gravel garden or alpine container.
