This herbaceous plant bears tall dense flower spikes of dainty pale purple flowers, each with two lips and spurs, rather like snapdragons. It’s extremely attractive to bees and butterflies, and makes a beautiful cut flower. The upright spires of purple toadflax grow well in sunny spots, such as flower borders, and various other planting locations in moist but well-drained soil and can grow up to around 60cm.

This purple-flowered plant is a plant native to Italy, and made its way over to the UK in the 17th Century when gardening was taking off in the UK. It has taken well to the UK climate and adds brilliant bold flower colour in the summer months and can grow well in poor soils.
