Linaria marocanna

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.
