flower arrangements with snapdragons

all about Snapdragons – and no, I’m not talking about me when I’m grumpy.

Snapdragons are a fun annual to plant and they remind me of my childhood! I love how pinching a snapdragon made their mouth open. We would pretend to make them talk to each other!

As you’re considering your spring planters keep these in mind. They come in so many colors (everyone except for blue sadly!) They look gorgeous grouped together with no other annuals. Before you do, remember that snapdragons can be as tall as three feet if you let them!

caring for & planting

They need at least part sun, if not full sun and well draining soil. Clip them to encourage more shoots and blooms. When you first plant them they like a lot of water the first few weeks while they are getting established. After that, water as you typically would to keep the soil wet.

Water a ton for first few weeks after planting, and then regular normal schedule. Try not to water directly over head, but rather at base of flower.

snapdragons may actually be dragons!

For those of you who struggle with deer, my research told me that snapdragons are deer resistant! A few sites recommended planting them near vegetable gardens to help with deer! Who knew? I didn’t! We get some deer in our yard, and are planning our first vegetable garden this year so I may make a sweet little border of snapdragons around it!
