Common toadflax, is a lovely addition to the garden where it flowers late summer – mid autumn, therefore adding interest later in the season. The pale yellow flowers resemble mini snapdragons and the orange lip adds a splash of colour. In the wild,Toadflax can be found growing on roadsides and wasteland. However, it is also perfect in a wildlife garden or within a border where it will form upright clumps upto 50cm tall.
Bumblebees are the main pollinator. However the Common toadflax is also the food plant of several moths such as Eupithecia linariata, the toadflax pug moth!
If you do wish to cut the flowers, they do last very well in a vase.
