Fairy Bouquet is a charming blend of bright colored, dainty, 3/4" flowers above delicate, airy foliage. Linaria makes an impressive, colorful show when planted in mass, and is also an excellent container filler or border flower that attracts pollinators. Also known as toadflax, and often called a mini-snapdragon because of the resemblance. Cut flowers make darling bouquets. A 1934 All-America Selections winner.
