Plant Details

Native of the Iberian peninsula, Morocco and Algeria.

Easy to grow, this is a great plant for a container or the front of a border.

Height: 15cm

Common name(s): Melancholy Toadflax, Black-Flowered Toad-Flax, Dull-Colored Linaria, Toadflax, Spurred Snapdragon, Sad-Colored Linaria

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
