Antirrhinum, commonly known as Snapdragons, garden snapdragon or dragon flowers, are short-lived perennials and semi evergreen subshrubs, usually grown as annuals, flowering from spring to fall. They can survive in cold seasons and sometimes overwinter in certain zones if given a deep, loose mulch but are often replanted each spring. Needs full or partial sun and rich, well-drained soil. Removing dead flowers (deadhead) helps prolong the flowering season. Easily propagated by seed sown outdoors in late spring or by stem cuttings in early fall or spring. It is widely used as an ornamental plant in borders and as a cut flower since they range in dwarf to tall sizes. Blooming peak seasons are April to June and August to October. The 1-3 in. (3-7cm) fragrant flowers come in a variety of colors including multicolored patterns depending on the cultivar. Avoid overhead watering.
