Dalmation Toadflax was introduced as an ornamental plant from the Mediterranean in the late 1800’s.

Flowers are similar to that of a snapdragon and large plants produce nearly 1/2 million seeds.

Dalmation Toadflax loves arid rangelands, pastures, railways and waste areas and is primarily a weed of the Intermountain West and California.

The weevil, Mecinus janthinus, acts as a biocontrol agent for Dalmation Toadflax.
