Details

A great choice for field-cut snaps, or in the back of a flower bed to provide tall, upright and brilliant color all season long. This mix features a color spectrum in shades of pinks and yellows. The flowers emit a rich, spicy scent you will love in the garden or the vase! Children enjoy "snapping" the flowers that look like tiny dragon mouths - and hummingbirds love visiting and sipping the nectar from the flowers. The plants withstand light fall frosts, and occasionally overwinter, even here in Michigan!

Snapdragon flowers can also be used as a colorful garnish in salads, desserts and drinks. The flavor is floral and slightly bitter, so use sparingly.

Michigan Seeds grown on our farm, Renegade Acres, in Howell, MI!

Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth.
