Set B2 - Wild Flowers - card information

13. Toadflax
(Linaria vulgaris Mill.)

13. Toadflax

Late in the autumn, when most wild flowers have disappeared, the toadflax is still in full bloom on the hedge banks. In favourable conditions its smooth stems are upright, and reach a height of about three feet. They are thickly clad with narrow leaves. The spikes of yellow flowers resemble those of the garden snapdragon, except that, in the toadflax, each flower has a long tail or spur.
