Plant Common Name

General Description

The heavy blooming, compact snapdragons in the Twinny Series are double and lipless, so technically they don't snap. The "butterfly" blooms come in lots of pretty colors including the ivory and white, 'Twinny White.' They are noted for their heat tolerance and high-performance as well as beauty. Members of the Twinny Series were bred by HEM Genetics.

Commonly grown as an annual, snapdragon is actually a short-lived perennial that originates from southwestern Europe and the Mediterranean. In northern climates it is commonly grown as warm season bedding plant, and in southern areas, with excessively hot, humid summers and mild winters, it is an excellent winter annual

This clump-forming bedding plant has medium green, lance-shaped leaves. From summer to fall it bears upright spikes of double, lipless flowers. Blooms come in shades of white, red, peach, pink, yellow, purple and orange, depending on the cultivar.

Easy to grow and sun-loving, snapdragons grow best in sharply drained fertile garden soil. They flower best if spent flower spikes are removed and plants are fed regularly. When weather is very hot they may cease from blooming for a spell, though Twinny cultivars are more resilient of heat than most. Enjoy these fine bedding plants in containers and mixed beds and borders.
