From Morocco. This annual grows 1 1/2–2 ft. high, 6 in.wide. Summer flowers appear in red-and-gold, rose, pink, mauve, chamois, blue, violet, or purple, blotched with a different shade on the lip. Spur is longer than flower. Northern Lights strain offers shades of red, orange, and yellow as well as bicolors. Fairy Bouquet strain is only 9 in. tall and has larger flowers in pastel shades. For a showy display, sow seeds in quantity in early spring, after danger of frost is past. In Zones 10–13, sow in fall for winter bloom.

Naqtive to Southern Europe. Narrow, bushy, erect growth to 2 1/2–3 ft. high, 1 ft.wide. Blue-green foliage; violet-blue flowers from spring to late fall.
