Chaenorhinum origanifolium 'Blue Eyes'

Dwarf toadflax

The dwarf toadflax, Chaenorhinum origanifolium, is an alpine plant from southern Europe with a delightful spreading habit. 

It's best grown in a rockery or in a wall as it forms tumbling cushions of tiny rounded dark green leaves with purple undersides. 

In spring and summer these are complemented by small purple snapdragon flowers with yellow throats. 

Although short lived it self sows copiously. Collect some seed and sprinkle into paving, bricks or the crevices in stone walls. Very cute.
