Don't Let the Name Fool You

Purple Toadflax
You'd think with a name like Toadflax, it could not possibly be anything you'd want to put in your garden.  But you'd be wrong.  This is such a nice addition to several of my containers.  It's called Purple Toadflax.  It doesn't take up a whole lot of room and it grows upright on feathery-like stems about 24" high.  It's hardy to zone 5 and it reseeds very easily.  So it's not only attractive, it's economical too.  It likes lots of sun and grows well in pretty much any kind of soil.  Best of all, it grows all summer long.
