Linaria - Linaria maroccana

Linaria: Generalities

The Linaria is commonly known as the toad mouth because of the shape of its flowers. Another association that has always referred to linaria is inherent to linen (the term linaria in fact dates back to the Latin linum); its leaves seem to trace the texture of the fabric, especially before flowering. The meaning attributed to the linaria in the language of flowers is that of stubbornness and is to be traced back to the great reproductive capacity of the plant, which in a short time manages to cover extensive surfaces.
