History & Origin

Snapdragons are native to the Mediterranean.

When to Plant

Snapdragons can be planted 2–3 weeks before the frost free date.

How to Plant

Snapdragons will grow in full sun to partial shade. Space the smaller varieties six to eight inches apart and the taller varieties 12 inches apart.

Special Care

Remove dead flowers. In mid-summer cut snaps back to about six inches tall. This will produce new growth and blooms. Tall snapdragons are great for flower arrangements.
