The snaps are gorgeous. The blooms keep on coming! The plants are 1-2' tall in my in-ground bed. I worked some chicken manure into the soil at planting time. I top dress with worm castings twice a year.

Great germination

I started these seeds in late winter and had a great germination rate. I have lots of beautiful plants, but so far no blooms. We've had a very hot summer so that may be the problem. I have them planted in sun/part sun. I'm still hoping for an explosions of flowers.

Performed great!

Started inside during winter and transplanted before our last frost. The seedlings were snowed on and still went on to bloom beautifully in the spring and then again in the fall!

love these flowers

I had no idea how this was going to work because I had never started snapdragons from seed before - and was a bit surprised at the tiny size of the seeds. But every single one came up and bloomed beautifully all season long. Will definitely do this again!

I Grow These Every Summer

Another excellent snapdragon choice. Super easy to sow directly in the spot you want them. Or, you can start them early inside or outside with the milk jug method. They so readily self seed too providing you with free flowers the following year.

These snapdragons did not read the rule book - Outstanding!

I have grown this variety of snapdragon for two years now. In 2021 and 2022 some of the plants managed to survive the extreme Texas heat to perform again later in the year.. With only a slight haircut, they are already giving a fall show. I have grown these in the ground and in containers, and they are definitely a keeper.
