Night and Day Snapdragon Seeds

(P) Pkt of 100 seeds
Item #02563-PK-P1


A descendant of the renowned Black Prince | Free-flowering, bushy 18-inch plants

One of the most striking snapdragons we have ever seen, Night and Day Snapdragon is a bold study in contrast. The deep scarlet blooms shade almost into black, revealing their parentage (the famous heirloom Snap, Black Prince) and highlighting the pure white of the lower "jaws." Absolutely stunning in the bed or border, this vibrant, brilliantly beautiful Night and Day Snapdragon deserves a place of honor in the garden.

The Night and Day Snapdragon plant grows 18 inches tall and about a foot wide, blooming in spring and fall in warm climates and all summer in cooler ones. The blooms have a strong spicy scent and arise very abundantly on robust plants. For an interesting effect, try interplanting Night and Day Snapdragon with its parent, Black Prince, which has deep crimson blooms and bronze foliage (and is the same plant size).

If you have never "snapped" a Snapdragon, here is how to do it: You'll notice that the blooms form two separate cupped clusters that meet in the middle, like jaws. Gently squeeze the sides of the jaws, and the two clusters will separate, just like a mouth opening. The space is just the right size for a child's finger to poke into the dragon's mouth. Release the bloom and the jaws "snap" closed.

Night and Day Snapdragon Seeds may be direct sown or started indoors for earlier blooms. Snaps are cool-season annuals that bloom in spring and fall in warm areas, summer in colder climates. In very warm locations they may winter over if mulched. They do best in full sun to light shade.

Snapdragons in general

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I love snapdragons. You cab usually get more than one season of blooms if protected. And, last year, I had snapdragons in bloom on Christmas Eve.

Pretty flowers ok plants

This shopper rated the product 3 out of 5 stars

These are pretty. the foliage is dark and the flowers are lovely. but they tend to lay over on their side so I'm not a big fan.

Striking color

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

I was looking for a showy, tough plant to brighten up sunny church gardens. These plants did well in baking Pennsylvania sun and some have wintered over and bloomed beautifully the last 3 years. They were a little slow to sprout in flats, but their deep wine-red color is striking and perfect sprinkled in among other annuals.

They are beautiful and grew well for me. Some even came back for a 2nd year. I grew them with my Horticulture therapy group and was pleased with the results.
