Linaria maroccana is a species of flowering plant in the plantain family known by the common name Moroccan toadflax.
It is native to Morocco, but it can be found elsewhere growing wild as an introduced species, such as California.
This is an annual herb growing erect to approach half a meter in maximum height, its stem with linear leaves 2 to 4 centimeters long. The inflorescence is a raceme of flowers occupying the top of the stem. At the base of each flower is a calyx with five narrow, pointed lobes. The flower is 2 to 4 centimeters centimeters long with five lobes arranged into two lips with a spur at the end. The flower is often purple in color with white near the throat, but flowers of many different colors are bred for the garden. Dwarf cultivars are also available.
