Creeping snapdragon (Asarina procumbens) produces trailing stems with soft green to gray green leaves and light yellow, snapdragon-like flowers that are faintly streaked with reddish purple. Blooming from early or midsummer to early or mid fall, it can flower the first year from a late-winter or early-spring sowing. The plants reach just a few inches tall and can hug the ground, trail over the edge of a retaining wall, or cascade out of a container planting. It’s very pretty along a path, but it can’t tolerate any foot traffic. Full sun to partial shade. Perennial, but you can grow it as an annual where it’s not winter-hardy; Zones 7 (maybe 6) to 8. Best where summers aren’t too hot; it’s most vigorous in cooler conditions. The plants can self-sow, so even if the original plants don’t survive the winter, the volunteers may replace them.
