Snapdragon

Snapdragon

Snapdragons are native to the Mediterranean. But, we are sure glad someone brought them over here! They are a favorite flower for cutting and fragrance. Strong-stemmed spikes are tightly packed with large "dragons" in white, yellow, purple, crimson, bronze, pink in a range of hues. Long lasting flowers are so profuse that they can hide the leaves at peak bloom. Snapdragon plants are an easy to grow annual. Most varieties are early summer bloomers. They often wilt in the mid-summer's heat, but often perk back up and bloom again in cooler fall weather. Snapdragons are excellent in beds, edgings, and containers. Try them in rock gardens or window gardens too. They are a popular flower for bouquets and vases
