Just thinking about trying it next year and would sow in September anyone grown it? is it invasive, look nice etc?

I have never grown it, though I have often meant to try it. I think it looks really pretty.

I grew a smaller version of linaria this year and it has been very successful. Will try to post pics 2morrow

Oh, they're lovely, cairnsie. And they're absolutely not invasive, they are annuals. I've sown them in between thrifts of Stipa tenuifolia, among other meadow flower-like plants, and it looked stunning. I used a seedmix called Linaria maroccana 'Northern Lights Mixed'.
