Night and Day Snapdragon Seeds

#1310
Availability: In Stock

'Night and Day' is a spicy scented, visually striking cousin of the 'Black Prince' snapdragon. This bumblebee favorite is long blooming and makes absolutely gorgeous cut flowers! We love how it looks next to bunny tails grass in a container. When the weather cools in fall, its dark red petals turn nearly black and its foliage turns dark burgundy, enhancing the contrast with its lower white jaws.

My black knight seeds emerged on schedule! Now what. ? Seeds are so small they are clumped together. I thin them out I reckon to what spacing?

Owner Response: Hi Ron, Thanks for your review of these pretty flowers. We are sorry it wasn't more positive--please let us know if you experienced an issue we can help with. These snapdragons should be thinned to 1 plant every 12 inches. You can find this information on every Botanical Interests' seed packet on the back in the plant tag area. Happy growing!

Stunning!

I get to grow these twice a year! Got a batch grown in the spring and the seeds that drop are growing now for fall. They made a great bouquet and will grow more to have more bouquets around the house.

The first year growing Night and Day Snapdragon and it has not disappointed. I like the colors and interesting patterns on this plants. I use it in bouquets at my self-serve flower stand. It's a keeper.
