Best out of three

I grew three varieties of snapdragon last year and out of the three (and at least one of the other two were hybrids), this one performed best. It was the least likely to need support and was vigorous and rebloomed throughout the year with deadheading.

These snapdragons were excellent -- good germination, tolerated transplanting well, bloomed throughout the summer and most of fall without deadheading. Even after they stopped blooming, the plants survived through several frosts in December and a few dustings of snow. I was surprised by how cold hardy they turned out to be, and was very satisfied with them overall. Will be growing them again in the spring.
