Well-branching and topped with a flower spike of brilliant plum-burgundy blossoms with touches of white and yellow, 'Ribbon Purple' is a knockout! A short-lived tender perennial (often used simply as an annual) that grows to about knee-high, its native to southwestern Europe and the Mediterranean. It bears early-season flowerspikes of distinctly lipped flowers that snap open and shut when squeezed, hence the name “snapdragon". Regarded for its good branching and intermediate size, 'Ribbon Purple' will flower from very early spring to fall, if spent flowerspikes are removed from atop the green foliage. When weather is very hot they will cease blooming, reblooming again in the cooler temperatures of autumn.
Grow 'Ribbon Purple' in full sun and moist, well-drained, average soil that has organic matter and moisture. Often used as an annual plant in regions with mild and cool summers, the snapdragon is best reared outside of summer in the subtropics. Place a dry, thick mulch over plants in colder climates to help them overwinter without damage. Enjoy this branched snapdragon massed in annual beds on in large containers for glorious, impactful color. The full form allows it to create a grand bedding display in spring.
