Common Toadflax (Linaria vulgaris) Herb in 9cm Pot

Common toadflax or Yellow toadflax will grow well in any soil in sun or partial shade.  It grows in clusters and has 'snap-dragon' like flowers from June to October, which are pale yellow tipped with almost-orange, giving it its other common name of butter and eggs.  It is native to the UK and is often found in meadows, hedgerows, and road verges it can become invasive as it spreads by its roots but can be kept in check by pulling up unwanted plants. It can be grown in a lawn, meadow or flower border and is also very attractive to bees.

Herb Usage

The Linaria vulgaris or yellow toadflax has been used in ancient folk medicine and is said to have astringent and diuretic properties.
