Product Description

Antirrhinum majus

Open-faced butterfly-type flowers in a mix of colors. Vigorous plants reaching 40″ tall.  Blooms are longer-lived than other snapdragons, in both the garden and in vases.  Flowers are lightly scented.

Snapdragons prefer cooler weather and will typically stop blooming when temperatures get too high. Start 8-10 weeks before your last average frost. Barely cover as light is required for germination. Kept at 60-70° F, germination is in 10-14 days.  Harden off and transplant into the garden after all danger of frost has passed.  Space 6-8″ apart for dwarf varieties and 10-12″ apart for tall varieties.

For bushier plants that produce more flowers, pinch plants back by half their height when plants have formed 4-6 leaves or are approximately 4-5 inches tall (for tall varieties), 3-4″ tall for dwarf varieties.

Plants like rich, moist, well-drained soils. Avoid overhead watering. When cut back after flowering, snapdragons will quickly bloom again.  Bloom cycle is complete when temperatures stay consistently above 80°F.
