Add snapdragon charm to your garden and cut-flower arrangements. A bee magnet, bumblebees climb into the "mouths" and sometimes are completely hidden! Breathtaking when planted in mass. Late afternoon shade is beneficial in hot summer areas. The edible flowers make a pretty garnish on salads, desserts, and cold drinks. Usually grown as an annual, although perennial in USDA zones 5 and warmer. Deer resistant.

These are some of the loveliest snapdragons I've ever seen. The seeds begin to sprout quite delicately, but they grow into quite hardy, lush, beautifully colored plants. I have many planted in a strip of garden in full sun along a fenceline garden, and they couldn't be more pleasing to the eye! I'm so pleased by how hearty they are, too!

Beautiful in the vase and in the garden

Beautiful! Germination was excellent, flowers are tall and lush. Many white ones, but also light and dark pink. I haven't seen any yellow or purple yet. These make beautiful additionals to bouquets.

Lovely mix

These snapdragons germinated so well I had more than I planned to have. I pinched them when they got 4-5 sets of leaves and transplanted the seedlings out when it was warm enough. The have done really well growing 1.5-2 feet tall and have a nice mix of colors. I read that you can squeeze the base of the open bud and puppet the flower to talk and thought that was hilarious. I didn't realize these could be perennials in my zone, so maybe I will leave them in place instead of pulling them out and see if they come back next year.

My favorite flower of the year

5 out of 5 stars Nov 10, 2021
In a garden full of amazing veggies, fruits, and flowers, these came out as my favorite plant I grew this year. The colors were bright and happy all summer, I think every seed germinated (we had oodles), and they smelled sweet like bubblegum. They attracted giant bumblebees all summer long. I was sad to say goodbye to these lovely plants.

These are absolutely delightful. Excellent in every respect from germination rate to beauty. Just fantastic and super easy to grow from start to finish. Copious self reseeding every year too. Saves money!
