Did you know?

Commonly called Dragon flowers because of their jawlike florets. Many a child has enjoyed pressing on the side of the flowers so they seem to be talking. 

Tender perennials are grown as annuals. They like the cooler weather and stop flowering in high temperatures. Long flowering in the garden and lasts well in the vase.

 

About Snapdragons: Snapdragons flower during summer and autumn, and removing the dead flowers will encourage more to grow
