Description

Makes an especially nice focal point in container gardens

Days to Maturity: 77 to 84

Usually grown as annuals, the short-lived tender perennials (Zones 7-10) in the Sonnet Mix Snapdragon offer spring to fall interest, typically blooming until first frost. Vibrant tubular, two-lipped flowers arise in a harmonious blend of white, yellow, pink, and rose hues. Borne on long, stout stalks, the fragrant flower spikes attract butterflies, hummingbirds, and pollinators of all types, and they make excellent cuts for bouquets and floral arrangements.

The medium-tall plants in the Sonnet Mix Snapdragon have a neat, bushy, upright habit of lance-shaped, glossy dark green leaves. Shown to best effect when massed or grouped, they work well in beds and borders and are especially nice as the thriller (focal point) in large garden containers.

Snapdragons have strong root systems and prefer full sun and organically rich, moist, well-drained soil. Although snapdragons are low maintenance, pinching off the tops of established plants results in bushier plants with a heavier bloom, and deadheading regularly encourages and prolongs flowering. Cutting back and fertilizing plants that have declined also promotes a later bloom.

Direct sow snapdragon seed after the last frost in spring while the soil is still cool, or start seeds indoors 6 to 10 weeks before the last frost and transplant after all threat of frost has passed.

If you plan to start your seeds indoors, be sure to check out our Bio Dome Seed Starter Kit. With the Bio Dome, you can control the temperature, light, and soil mix to ensure your seeds become strong for transplant.
