Snapdragons (Angelonia hybrids) are stalwarts of summer gardens and containers. Their tall stalks produce plenty of colorful flowers; place them in containers to thrill behind filler plants or use several to border garden beds.
Snapdragons come in many saturated colors, including the purple hues, whites, pinks and combinations of lavender-blue and white that we offer. These sturdy and easy-care flowers fill containers with thriller color in summer, and continue blooming with no deadheading needed.
Snapdragons also are known as Angelonia. Snapdragons are perfect summer annuals, thrilling in containers, bordering garden beds, or as a fragrant mass planting.
