Linaria maroccana ‘Licilia Peach’
In gorgeous sunset colours of coral, yellow and red, this baby snapdragon is a real charmer, bringing an unusual colour palette into the garden.
Unlike the stockier, bedding snapdragons, this baby version has an airier habit, the dainty blooms held on long, slender stems on upright panicles. This allows them to blend effortlessly with other border plants as well as making delightful container specimens. They also make long-stemmed cut flowers which will last for up to two weeks in a vase. A really easy and fast-growing hardy annual which will bloom in as little as 6 weeks and flowers for up to 2 months. Plants will happily self-seed if allowed. Awarded the prestigious Fleuroselect Industry Award.
Height: 50cm (20”). Spread: 25cm (10”).
No special care is needed. Prefers light, well-drained sandy soil in full sun.

Alternatively, sow on the surface of good quality seed compost, covering with a fine layer of vermiculite or compost. Germinate at 20-25C (68-77F). Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 5-21 days. Do not exclude light at any stage, as this helps germination.
Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Grow on in cooler conditions before planting out 20-25cm (8-10in) apart.
