Dalmatian Toadflax

Dalmatian Toadflax       Linaria dalmatica

Dalmatian toadflax is a plant native to central Europe east to central Asia.  It was originally introduced into North America as an ornamental plant in the late 1800's and escaped cultivation and became invasive by the 1920's.

The attractive flowers look like spurred yellow snapdragons and its blue-green stems grow to nearly four feet tall. It spreads by seeds and roots.

Biocontrol is available and offers only fair control of this invasive weed.  Select herbicides can offer moderate control when applied from spring through fall.  The only way to make sure it is dead is to persistantly remove all plants by digging them out.
