Hi James, two votes on our social media for 'Toadflax' or 'Linaria'... could that be it?

"Yes, Linaria purpurea. Purple toadflax. Funny one, really a weed but good for pollinators and lovely tall purple flower spikes. We let it grow here and there and weed it out in other spots."

"Could it be Purple Toadflax, Linaria purpurea?"

Agree...linaria purpurea. Not just annual though gives loads of seedlings it will survive winters. Very easy to remove if necessary.
Hope you've acquired some by now. If not try for some seeds from wasteland plants and scatter in garden.
Other hybrids available. Common family name .. . toadflax.

Hi David, yes two votes for Linaria purpurea on our social media too.

"Linearia purpurea a short lived perennial"

"Yep, linaria. Pretty. Will seed itself enthusiastically... just hoik it out when small from anywhere you don't want it."

I hope this helps?

Cheers, Nicola

Linaria purpurea perhaps? Just found it is sometimes called toadflax, but is nothing like the little creeping thing that gets into walls....

Re: I pulled loads out over the weekend - I now think it might be a plant?!

Hi Nush,
Try Linaria purpurea, "Purple Toadflax".
It is often classed as a weed in gardens in the UK but, it is very pretty and if it does come up in the right place then you can keep it. It will self seed but as you know; it is easy to pull up.
Best wishes,
Samantha Jane

It is linaria purpurea, it comes from seed a nice little filler plant for a new garden, they tend to die out, so letting them seed a little helps.

Would appreciate a close up of the leaves and a picture of the flower when it does, A guess would be linaria purpurea, Canon's went, but that is long shot, they do seed themselves, it is a pretty plant with either lavender or pink flowers .

Re: Narrow leaves, spires of tiny beige bells

Message from hillwards

In forum: Identify a plant

This year, it grew much sturdier with tall straight stems, and is now producing lots of spires of small snapdragon-like pink flowers - I've identified it as Linaria purpurea 'Canon Went'. Thanks, Ann & James you were both on the ball.

It must have flowered unnoticed last year, it was rather buried under vigorous Antirrhinums at the time, and was still a very small plant then.

Could it be a white form of Linaria purpurea. I have a purple one that spreads around the garden.

It looks similar to Purple Toadflax (Linaria purpurea) that has gone to seed, but you would have noticed that when in flower! Perhaps related?
