Linaria canadensis, a biennial herb of 1-60cm in height, originating in North America, grows in the wild in much of Japan on roadsides or lawns. Leaves are linear, the phyllotaxis being opposite or in whorls of 3 or 4; however, sparsely alternate on upper portions. Racemes appear on stem tips, which set several blue-purple labiate flowers, corollas measuring approximately 1cm long and deeply cut in two; stamens are 4, 2 of which are shorter than the others, and the pistils are single. Bloom time: April-May.
