Nuttallanthus canadensis (Linaria canadensis)

Blue toadflax has small flowers on top of slender stalks. The small flowers and wispy foliage make the plant easy to overlook, but it can be quite abundant in its preferred habitat of sunny, sandy areas. In early summer, many sandy roadsides have a haze of blue from blue toadflax in bloom.
