    Overview

    The Baby Snapdragon (Linaria maroccana) that also goes by the its common names the Moroccan toadflax is an annual, ½ to 2 foot tall plant. Violet purple, lavender, pink, white, or yellow flowers are two-lipped with jaws that open like snapdragons.

    Baby snapdragons can be seen blooming from March to May throughout the United States. They tolerate most soils, have very low water requirements and are deer-resistant.

    Planting Tips

    Baby snapdragon seeds are very small and should be sown on the surface of the soil. You can then roll them with a roller or walk on them to make sure they come in good contact with the soil.

    Water gently so they don’t get washed away. These flowers do best in full sun, although part afternoon shade helps them continue to flower in hot summer weather.
