Snapdragon, “Tall Maximum Blend” Seeds
Add snapdragon charm to your garden and cut-flower arrangements. A bee magnet, bumblebees climb into the “mouths” and sometimes are completely hidden! Breathtaking when planted in mass. Late afternoon shade is beneficial in hot summer areas. The edible flowers make a pretty garnish on salads, desserts, and cold drinks. Usually grown as an annual, although perennial in USDA zones 5 and warmer. Deer resistant.
