Snapdragon, Black Prince (Organic)

Antirrhinum majus. 60-70 days.

We’re big fans of dark flowers; deep dark purples and reds are always welcome in our gardens. The alluring, velvety crimson Black Prince snapdragon is a great addition to our collection. Gorgeous flowers bloom early and continually up stems that reach 2 ½’ tall. Very attractive to bumblebees. Blooms early and keeps going late into the season, especially if deadheaded. Grows well in containers. May overwinter if you’re lucky, and just might self-seed. An old variety that dates from around 1915. Deer resistant.
