Plant Care

Seeds are generally sown in late summer to early spring in flats and then planted later. In areas with milder winters the plants can be set outside in early fall.

Plant Growth:

Snapdragons range in size from 6 in. to 2 ft. wide.


If the snapdragons are set outside in early fall and reach bud stage before the night temperature drops below 50°F/10°C, they will bloom from winter until the weather gets hot. Deadhead for continued blooming.

Soil and Irrigation:

Snapdragons do best in fertile, yet sharply drained soils.
