General Description

Snapshot Rose snapdragon is a short-lived hybrid perennial to tender perennial. This old-fashioned garden favorite bears upright spikes of distinctly lipped rose-colored flowers that snap open and shut when squeezed, hence the name “snapdragon.”

Snapdragons will continue to bloom from summer to fall, if spent flower spikes are removed. When the weather is very hot they may temporarily stop blooming. Grow snapdragons in sites with full sun and sharply-drained, average soil. Enjoy these fine bedding plants in containers and mixed beds and borders.
