    This species is a minor escape throughout Vancouver. The first time I was introduced to it was at VanDusen Botanical Garden, where it happily seeds itself in the duff under Cedrus deodara trees. Here at UBC, it favours the same sort of habitats, in coniferous debris over gravel (e.g., next to pathways) in the sun.

    I must say that moving it to Plantaginaceae surprises me. I’ve always thought that Linaria was a typical plant for Scrophulariaceae. This type of movements will happen more often when more and more people look at Families on gene-level and make new consensus-trees using phylogenetic methods. Confusing sometimes, but very interesting.
    Lovely photo, by the way!

    Thank you, Daniel, for publishing my photo. BPotD readers might also be interested in looking up here two photos of Linaria caesia, a less well-known species that lives on coastal dunes.
