Linaria purpurea 'Canon Went'

Best in temperate northern climates, these annuals, biennials, and perennials are popular for their spikes of bright, snapdragon-like blooms. Long-spurred flowers are usually bicolor with contrasting lips. Blooms are yellow, blue, purple, or violet. Excellent cut flowers. Plant them as edging, borders, or in rock gardens. They are easy to grow in full sun and sandy, well-drained soil. Grow as an annual where summers are hot. Add to your plants by division. Grown from seed, they bloom the second year.

Soft pink flowers with orange-suffused throats grace this plant. Combine with purple or gray-leafed plants, such as purple basil or Artemesia.
