Care & Maintenance: Linaria

Linaria (Linaria Alpina) - This tiny trailing perennial is sometimes called Alpine Toadflax. It works well as a low-growing ground cover plant and establishes easily with Linaria seeds. Linaria Alpina has attractive green-gray foliage and bright violet flowers with an orange spot. It's very eye catching! Linaria Alpina flowers perform best in full-sun and in well-drained soils. Alpine Toadfloax grows well on rocky soils, and it performs nicely in containers, along the borders of the garden, in rock gardens, and as a general ground cover. Alpine Toadflax care is fairly simple. Water during prolonged dry spells, and cut back after flowering to encourage a second bloom.

Before sowing Linaria Alpina seeds, it is recommended to refrigerate the ground cover seed for 2 - 3 weeks. After refrigeration, sow the Alpine Toadflax seed indoors 6 - 8 weeks before the last frost, and the seedlings will be ready to transplant into the garden after frost danger has passed.
