Linaria dalmatica (weed) (L.) Mill. - (Dalmatian toadflax)

The weed is native to Eurasia and has been introduced into North America in 1894 as an ornamental, where it has become an important weed of rangelands, agricultural crops and waste areas. While the plants live only for a few years, stands can be persistent and compete with native vegetation. The plants are also toxic to cattle. They produce abundant seeds and these can survive in the soil for up to 10 years.
