Purple Toadflax Seeds - Linaria Purpurea - Pollinator Friendly & Perennial
Quantity: 200+ Seeds
Purple Toadflax is a perennial member of the Plantain family, Plantaginaceae. These hardy plants can grow up to 3 feet tall, and the flowers are abundant and beautiful. Although an individual flower doesn't last very long, the raceme (flowering stalk) staggers its blooms, so the plant is essentially in bloom for the whole growing season. These tiny purple flowers attract a wide range of pollinators, including hummingbirds, so planting Purple Toadflax anywhere near the garden will increase pollination of crops and other plants in the area. These plants are resistant to deer, drought, flood, and pests.
All seeds are organic and open pollinated.
Purple Toadflax seeds may be started in pots in the spring, or directly sown into the ground. If sown indoors, plant the seeds in a sterile growing medium; most available seed starting soils should do the job nicely; we use sunshine mix (peat moss and perlite). The soil should be made moist, but not damp. Sow the seeds 1/8 inch below the soil surface, or even sown on the surface. Store in a warm area until tiny sprouts emerge from the soil. Once germinated, and the first true leaf has formed, it's time to pot up to a larger container that contains a good quality potting soil. Transplant to their final location when the nighttime temperatures are consistently 8°C or higher.
