If you are looking for an easy-to-grow filler plant for the front of your border, try Linaria Fairy Bouquet. The plants grow 9-12" tall and have a nice bushy habit in full sun. The flowers resemble tiny snapdragons and this particular mix comes with a wide variety of colors (I've only posted pictures of 2 colors, but there are many more). The best thing about this plant is that it blooms all summer long without deadheading! Without sufficient watering, the plants will start to go dormant in very high temperatures. But my plants just survived a 7-day heatwave with once a day watering and are now blooming again. They don't seem to be bothered by acidic soil because some of mine are planted beneath a pine tree where I have trouble growing other annuals.
