Family

Scrophulariaceae

Botanical Name

ANTIRRHINUM majus 'Crown Yellow'( CROWN SERIES)

Plant Common Name

Crown Yellow Snapdragon, Snapdragon

General Description

Crown yellow snapdragon is a short-lived perennial to tender perennial that originates from southwestern Europe and the Mediterranean. This old-fashioned garden favorite bears upright spikes of distinctly lipped flowers of yellow that snap open and shut when squeezed, hence the name “snapdragon." Vigorous and everblooming, plants will flower from summer to fall, if spent flower spikes are removed. When weather is very hot they may cease from blooming for a spell. Grow these in sites with full sun and sharply-drained, average soil. Enjoy these fine bedding plants in containers and mixed beds and borders.
