Pests in Gardens and Landscapes
Family Scrophulariaceae (Figwort family)
Snapdragons are perennial plants usually treated
as annuals. There are various forms best suited for borders,
edges, beds, pots, or rock gardens. The Chinese Lanterns strain
has trailing stems and is best suited for hanging baskets.
Flowers are bell-shaped or lobed and come in various colors.
They bloom mostly in spring and early summer and attract butterflies.
In mild areas, flowers can also bloom in winter.
Optimum conditions for growth
Snapdragons do well in areas with full sun and need
regular water. In areas with mild winters and hot summers,
snapdragons will bloom from winter through spring.
