Baby Snapdragon, Toadflax
Brightly colored blooms look like small, spurred snapdragons (Antirrhinum). Medium green, very narrow leaves. Easy to grow. Best in masses; individual plants are rather wispy.
From Morocco. This annual grows to 1 1/2–2 ft. high and 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. The spur is longer than the 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.
