For all of us who miss our Snapdragons during the warmer months, Linaria comforts us with pea-like blooms in bright colors! These lovely upright stems bring pollinators into the garden and make delightful cutflowers for the vase. Linaria is an annual we should all be growing, and dwarf Licilia makes it possible to bring it into patio pots and smaller spaces.

Known as False Snapdragon (or by its older, less attractive name of Toadflax!), Linaria is a super quick-growing, open-pollinated annual that will self-sow where it is happy. The seeds are easy to direct-sow after all danger of frost, and once they germinate, you will see the first blooms just about 6 weeks later. Why can't everything in the garden be so quick and easy?

These flowers are simply gorgeous, a mix of coral-pink and bright yellow. The long stems are lovely for cutting, and the petals surround sweet nectar beloved of bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Expect Licilia Peach to reach just 18 inches high and up to 12 inches wide, but packed with flowering stems! No wonder it won a 2014 Fleuroselect Award, Europe's highest honor for a flowering seed!

The show begins in late spring in most climates, and will continue all summer if the flowers are promptly cut or deadheaded. In northern, short-summer climates, Licilia Peach is a plant for full sun; farther south and west, it prefers a bit of afternoon shade, or even a dappled mix all day.

Wonderful for dry or poor soil, Licilia will reseed itself freely, so you might want to begin with a generous planting in an open area and watch it return for many years! Be sure to leave the seeds on the plant to scatter themselves in your garden for next year! Pkt is 100 seeds.

Superior Germination Through Superior Science

Park's Superior Seeds Park Seed's humidity- and temperature-controlled seed storage vault Park Seed offers some of the highest-quality vegetable and flower seeds available in the industry, and there are a number of reasons for this.

First of all, we have humidity- and temperature-controlled storage, and we never treat any of our seeds with chemicals or pesticides. Nor do we ever sell GMO's (genetically modified seeds), so you always know the products you're buying from us are natural as well as safe for you and the environment.

Superior Standards - University Inspected

Testing seeds against minimum germination standards To make sure we are providing the best seed product possible and that our customers will get the highest number of seedlings from every packet, we conduct our own germination testing and have quality-control measures in every stage of our seed-handling operation. We hold ourselves to standards that are at or above federal and state standards, including testing specific crops more frequently than recommended by federal guidelines. And in order to maintain our organic certification, we welcome Clemson University to inspect us annually to make sure our organic seeds, which are stored and processed separately, are being handled properly.

Hand Packed By Experienced Technicians

Park Seed has been handling and packing vegetable and flower seeds for 145 years, a history that has given us a great understanding of how each variety should be cared for and maintained throughout every step of theprocess, from collection to shipping.

When packing our seeds, the majority are actually done by hand (with extreme care!), and we often over-pack them, so you're receiving more than the stated quantity.

Some of the small seeds are also offered as "pellets" (have a clay coating) to make sowing and growing easier.
