Antirrhinum (Snapdragon)

Snapdragons are a small family with a disjunct distribution in the western Medierranean and North America. They are annual to biennial or rarely short lived perennial species within the figwort family (Scrophulariaceae, nowadays sunk into Plantaginaceae) from open sunny spots. Several species have a good ornamental value for their upright hold inflorescences with numerous bright colored, often bi-colored flowers. All are easily cultivated in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny and protected spot.
Sow the dustlike seeds preferably in mid spring on top of any well drained soil. Do not cover seeds with soil, keep pots in a protected spot outside and soil slightly moist from below. Carefully transplant as soon as seedlings are strong enough.
All are USDA Climate Zone 7/8.
50 seeds per package.
