Snapdragons1 are perennials grown as half hardy annuals. Flowers grow on spikes of varying heights, from six inches to four feet. Rocket varieties are tall, sentinel are somewhat shorter Floral Carpet is very low but spreads widely. Colors can be pink, red, yellow, orange, purple, rust and white. There is always a place for their strong, vertical accents in the flower garden, and I find they bloom long after frost has cut down many other plants. As a bonus they’re a long lasting cut flower, so plant extras.

Well, if you want to grow this flower, then sow seeds indoors at least six weeks before the last frost, and transplant to the garden six to eight inches apart, as soon as you have some vigorous seedlings about four inches tall. They are cool weather plants that can be sown in August in warm climates for fall blooms, or in winter for early spring bloom. They like fertile, slightly alkaline soil. Pinch at four inches for bushier plants and more flower spikes. Cutting the flowers helps them to keep blooming. They will often self sow. So, this is very beautiful flower and you can easily grow it. These flowers seems very attractive in the open fields as well. Snapdragons are perennials grown beautifully.
