only one seed I planted germinated, but the flowers were so sweet I will probably try them again. The plant seemed very fragile here, perhaps too hot, I'm in zone 11, hawaii. (no zones listed on packet)

Positive Weezingreens On Oct 25, 2002, Weezingreens from Seward, AK (Zone 3b) wrote:

This is a dwarf version of the annual linaria. It is low-growing and works well as a border plant, in a rock garden, or in containers. Best planted in groupings, but allow space between plants, since new stems travel underground from the main root. The profuse blooms look like miniature snapdragons in shades of red, pink, purple, lavender, and yellow. This plant prefers cool summers, so it can also be planted in the winter in milder climes for year 'round bloom.
