|Upright in spring - second-year plant ||
Taprooted short-lived perennial. A weed in some US states. So far, it seems garden-worthy enough - bluish-green foliage, spikes of yellow flowers in its first year. Keeps blooming for a long time, but adapts a sprawling habit later in the season, much unlike its upright L. purpurea cousins.
||Linaria genistifolia subsp. dalmatica
||germinate at room temperature (some sources suggest a cold stage may be helpful)
Flowers first year from seed sown indoors early.

|Sprawling in late August of its first year |
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
