Sept 10ish Linaria reticulata ‘Flamenco’

We’re thinking over some container ideas for the late winter / early spring planting time.  Last year we went with this Linaria reticulata ‘Flamenco’.  Man that’s been a gorgeous plant.

For some reason, I thought we started this planting a lot earlier, but looks lie it was on April 1st…ish.  I bet would do fine with seed, but opted using 4inch starters instead.

Amazing how fast the Linaria ‘Flamenco’ took and started to flower…in less than a month. Those red and golden blooms are mouthwatering.

Besides being a showstopper, Linaria reticulata ‘Flamenco’ is one of those bloomers that keep on giving. It flowered for us for at least half a year. We did cut it back a couple times and that seemed to extend the flowering. Oh, bonus…after established, we didn’t have to feed it much water.
