Snapdragons are fun annuals. Individual flowers look like mouths. It’s fun to use snapdragon flowers to play with your kids. Just squeeze the bottom of the flowers and watch the “jaws” open and close. Snapdragons feature stalks of brightly colored flowers that bloom best during the cooler parts of spring and fall. They may stop flowering during the heat of summer. The flowers start blooming at the bottom of the stalk and open going up. They make great cut flowers and good companions to other cool season plants, especially since they can flower in part shade. While the standard snapdragons are tall, bushy plants, newer varieties have a trailing or creeping habit making them perfect for containers, window boxes, and cascading over walls. The plants are easy care with no deadheading needed.
