'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. The edible flowers with their unique shape make an interesting and pretty garnish on salads, desserts, and cold drinks.

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?
Ron knigge from MN
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!

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.

My favorite flower is the snapdragon and when I saw these in the catalog I knew I just had to try them. The seeds all sprouted and came up strong and healthy - bloomed all season long - will definitely order these next season!

Will these bloom the first year?

5 out of 5 stars Jun 4, 2022
Hi! I started these from seed, using the winter sowing method. The seedlings look great and very healthy, and, as the packet lists them as being a perennial in my zone (zone 6), I potted them in nursery pots with plans to plant them in the fall. But after doing some research, it seems that even this variety is grown as an annual. My question is, will it bloom this first season?
Heather from OH
Owner Response: Hi Heather, Snapdragons are hardy in zones 5 and warmer. Some consider snapdragons to be a "self-seeding" annual, as they will reseed and come back annually and flower in the first year. So yes! You can expect your snapdragons to bloom in the first season.
