Overview

This lovely mix of snapdragons includes a variety of rose shades – deep red, pale pink, lilac, peach, orange, lemon, and white. They will produce continuous blooms from summer through fall. Snapdragons are actually perennials but are often grown as annuals since they lose their vigor in subsequent years.

Snapdragons – Antirrhinum majus

Life cycle: Perennial / Ease of propagation: Moderate / Hardiness zone: 8-9

This lovely mix of snapdragons includes a variety of rose shades – deep red, pale pink, lilac, peach, orange, lemon, and white. They will produce continuous blooms from summer through fall. Snapdragons are actually perennials but are often grown as annuals since they lose their vigor in subsequent years.

Aside from being a wonderful cut flower and border flower, snapdragons can be harvested for dye. “A green dye is obtained from the flowers, it does not require a mordant. Dark green and gold can also be obtained if a mordant is used” (Plants for a Future).

Most sources recommend transplanting snapdragons, but we direct sowed this mix in spring and they did well. Snapdragons can be winter sown so you can also direct seed in late fall or winter and they will germinate in the spring. In flower production farms, plants are “pinched” (cut back by half their height when they’ve reached 3-4 sets of true leaves) to induce more flower-producing side branches.

Snapdragons prefer well drained soils in sun or partial shade. They can repeat bloom throughout the season but do best in the cool of spring and fall.

Sowing Instructions

Sow seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost. Do not cover seeds. Light is required for germination. Bottom water or mist lightly to avoid covering the seed with displaced soil. Transplant to larger containers when the first true leaves appear, approximately 3-4 weeks after sowing. Plant out 6-12 inches apart.
