Linaria purpurea
(Map updated: March 2008)

This is an herbaceous perennial garden plant which is increasingly seen on roadsides or rubbish dumps, presumably derived from garden throw-outs. The plant has very narrow leaves and fairly dense spikes of small snapdragon-like flowers which are usually purple but sometimes pink.

All names: Linaria purpurea (L.) Miller
