While most commonly found as a weed, toadflax is sometimes cultivated for cut flowers, which are long-lasting in the vase. Toadflax is a creeping perennial forb, with bright yellow and orange snap-dragon-like flowers. It can form dense populations, mainly through vegetative reproduction from root buds along underground rhizomes.This is responsible for the colony forming habit of the plant. It requires ample drainage, but is otherwise adaptable to a variety of conditions. In many areas it is a common naturalised weed of roadsides and poor soils. It is listed as an invasive species in several U.S. states and Canadian provinces as well as in Guateng, South Africa.
