detailed seed-starting info below
Seed ripensmid-July

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 dalmatica
Sprawling in late August of its first year

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
